I installed an aeroforce interceptor gauge that shows when MDS is on or off and has at least 20 other functions you can monitor like intake temps,
current gear, torque converter lockup, temps of oil, water, trans,etc

5 minute install - 1 cable that plugs into the OBD2 computer port under the dash.
You can set it up to scan so it displays 2 parameters for a fixed time that you set
then it goes to another set and scrolls through whatever you want.
It also has a 0-60 and 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile timer. You can also program the red lights on it to come on like a shift light on a tach or even to come on when say the
coolant temp goes past a certain degrees the lights will come on to warn you.
Pretty cool thing.

I noticed the PDF and doc refer to 2006-2008 models.
Is it the same wire colors etc for 2009 models?

I like that gauge.
If you can stay in MDS mode on the highway, do you actually get better milage?

Its really difficult to keep it in MDS mode. I live in california and the freeways are not very flat - so if you even put the slightest pressure on the gas pedal it turns off instantly. It takes some time to come back on when easing off the gas and cruising.
You would really have to drive it like you were driving a prius, to me any mpg gains
are minimal as the actual time in MDS is short.

I had an 06 without exhaust and couldnt ever tell whether MDS was on or off. Now I have an 07 with exhaust and you can EASILY tell when it kicks on or off. Hearing it alot when cruising in the 45-50 mph range.
