Default Would having a real-time fuel mileage display change your driving habits?

We once had a highly optioned Buick Regal w/ "Driver Information Centre". It did change my driving habits somewhat (in that car) but was in an awkward position requiring loss of road attention to view; information at the expense of safety. On one trip it revealed just how bad the roads are in our home province; when we crossed fr Alta into Sk the avg started dropping quickly; I tried to compensate by losing speed. Had been doing 33mpg @ 105K on smooth road; finished the trip doing 85K but averaging only 25 mpg. Think bouncing up/down & left/right doesn't hurt mileage? Much more than you think!
