Just edit the .DAT file to add it. I do this all the time. As an air traffic controller, 
SDG just doesn't get it for San Diego for me, so I add SAN. There are a couple 
of others I do that for that escape me at the moment.

If memory serves, you can simply add your preference to the list with the use of 
a semicolon, leaving the other options there. Take a look at the file to see how 
other options (i.e. VE2, QUE, PQ) are done and mimic that format.

Never be afraid to try something new; 
remember amateurs built the Ark, 
professionals built the Titanic
