So, do we think something like this would work, mounted somewhere underneath, maybe above the spare and wired to a physical switch in the dash?

It says it was designed for oil cooling but would work for a variety of other applications including fuel cooling.

We need to understand what the actual temperature of returned fuel in the line actually is. If it's just a few degrees above ambient (on hotter days) - that cooler likely wont do anything due to a lack of temperature differential.

No knowledge here, just Google, but it seems there inline fuel temp TCs available.

LCDC 8 Preparations:

Mounted up the iPad Air (wifi only) and added 4G LTE Hotspot and Bluetooth GPS in support. Running navigation (Waze, Google Maps (with download maps for offline, OnX Offroad (with downloaded maps for trails), entertainment (Spotify mostly) and Garmin PowerSwitch (Lights and Lockers) on iPad. Streaming audio from iPad is delivered over vehicle bluetooth.

This frees up my phone for displaying additional gauges via OBD Fusion and generally making the phone more available for taking photos and other tasks without disrupting navigation, entertainment etc. This is particularly useful on the trail when exiting the vehicle and wanting to have phone handy without having to get everything set back up upon getting back in the vehicle.

Escort Max 360 is also connected via bluetooth to the iPad so alerts are audible over the vehicle audio system and not drowned out by music.

HAM radio is the same setup for the past year-ish having moved from the Icom 5100a to the Yaesu FTM-400XDR for better APRS functions.

Sorry if I missed but can you post the info and pics of how you have the iPad mounted?
