Problem is memory in the PIC18F. It is tiny (a couple of KB of RAM and EEPROM). Nowhere near enough to store a stream of can bus data.
We could conceivably stream it over a GPRS data connection - so long as the connection was stable that might be workable, but I doubt whether it could stream at more than 9600baud or so so we're gonna lose a lot of data.
From the wiring point of view, it is three / four pins, so should be possible to just tap those.

My plan was to (some day) look at the OVMS source, figure out a way to turn it into a very short-term CAN bus recorder, and set it to record for the duration of the TPMS tool usage. I'm not really sure how feasible that would be, but it seems possible.
