You could switch to rrdtool based mrtg. If you do, you can import
the existing data into the rrd and work on that. The 14all tool
displays data like mrtg would do and you could build your own
displaying routine to accomplish what you would like to reach.

If you want to stick to the old mrtg, set maxbytes to the maximum
you want to see. There is a problem with that, if the real rate
is higher than the "allowed" one, mrtg displays the last good rate.
Another problem: your percentages go wrong.

P.S. look in contrib/14all for the mrtg on rrd stuff and visit
http://ee-staff.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/rrdtool/ for rrdtool.
