I always loose my trip meter data when I close out of the program. Is this normal? I would like to be able to close the program and start it back up without loosing the trip meters/ Is this possible. TED

When you Create a Trip or Tank Minder Gage, a Record of the Engine's Total Miles, Total Gallons of Fuel and Total Hours is recorded in a small File in the VMSpc's Subdirectory. As you Drive, the Engine's Total Miles, Total Gallons of Fuel and Total Hours Increase, and the Original Total Miles, Total Gallons of Fuel and Total Hours in the File are Subtracted from the Current Total Miles, Total Gallons of Fuel and Total Hours, giving the Distance Traveled, Gallons Used and Elapsed Hours.. When you Exit the Program, if you did not Save the new VMSpc Screen Layout, before hand, the Trip or Tank Minder Gage Will Not Load. Always remember to Do a File-->Save, whenever you Add or Delete Gages from your VMSpc Screen Layout.. MarkO =================================================================== Mark D.
