How to use it? [cable/software/hardware... what exactly?]
Can i recover much useful data about car from it?

I use it every day sadly. I have this stupid thing from my car insurance where they measure my driving to see if i'm driving safely and it lasts a YEAR. -___-

Yes you can, they get my mileage, breaking measurements, accelerating measurements, practically anything from it

i would not prefer using a scan tool due to its cost...
i just want to use OBD to improve my economy...


so for that, i would prefer connecting it to my laptop with the cable..
i already have freeware OBD softwares which will do...
although i dont know how much the "OBD male to USB connectors" cost...

Getting fancy.

To really improve fuel would be, keep it under 2200 rpms. Brake easy. Lol that's all I do

Consider the ELM 327 Bluetooth unit and then you can use a smartphone or tablet instead of a laptop.
