      Comments about ScanGauge II Digital Trip Monitor:

      I purchased this with the intent of using it in my daily driver to monitor instantaneous fuel economy, engine coolant temp and to check other sensors to verify they were functioning properly. It is a nice unit that is easy to install and setup.

      The only complaint I have is that the refresh rate is a bit slow. Even with it set on high it still takes about a second to refresh and update.

      Excellent information

      By Dave

      Pros

      • Custom Gauge Codes
      • Easy To Install
      • Lots of information
      • Works With 6 Liter Diesel

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Engine Temp Monitoring
        • Mileage Computer

        Comments about ScanGauge II Digital Trip Monitor:

        This is the gauge to get if you need to monitor engine temps which is critical information to know if you have a Ford 6.0 liter diesel. There are custom gauge code available on the manufacturer's web site that allow you to monitor all the manufacturer's private codes. It takes a little programming to set these up, but there are plenty of detailed instructions. It is also excellent for monitoring fuel consumption, providing instant and average mpg, tank mpg, miles to empty and time to empty based on your speed. Excellent gauge.

              Comments about ScanGauge II Digital Trip Monitor:

              My vehicle is missing an outside temperature gauge although there appears to be a sensor mounted below the front grill. I could have bought a simple temperature gauge but the idea of having access to other data (oil temp,transmission oil temp, mph, mpg, and averages) plus the ability to read the codes for the Check Engine Light, made the Scangauge II a more useful instrument.

                    Stock gauges are insufficient. Using this to monitor transmission temps on a tow vehicle. All the MPG stuff is kind of useless: just dive slower to save gas.
                    Only problem is lack of mounting hardware. It is dangerous to have this thing sliding across the dash board, and the two pieces of velcro tape predictably FAIL, This thing should have two detachable hooks on the back to allow you to hang it on a standard rear view mirror. it is not convenient that a mounting bracket is sold separately

                      Comments about ScanGauge II Digital Trip Monitor:

                      I have been on a quest to improve the miles-per-gallon on my 1996 Toyota Tacoma. This product has been one of the most useful upgrades I've used so far!

                      It's just a small, digital display that plugs into your OBDII port and then gives you REAL TIME MPG, trip fuel costs, average MPG, and other options. It has to be calibrated on your first 2 fill-ups to get the most accurate MPG read-out, but this has been worth the purchase!

                      This device doesn't really "save gas" by doing anything to your vehicle, but having the REAL TIME mpg helps you find that sweet-spot on the throttle so you can save that precious $4 a gallon gas!
