Ya, mine is 13% but figured when I get the 4.10 it will bring it down to only like 2%.

Is the MPG calculation simply based off resetting the trip on the scan gauge when you fill up or does it acquire data from the OBDII to calculate that?

Also would love to see some pics of what it looks like installed in your trucks!

Its real time, it acquires data from the computer through the OBDII port

Just got mine today.... Many others have this same install location. Underneath my cd deck would have been ideal but It would've stuck out a little and you don't have to take your eyes as far off the road this way.

For my tires I did 29/35. The speed seems pretty close, but still no gps. Did I mention I love this thing!!

I also had a question about the gear % input. I have 4.10's, came stock. What do I compare the 4.10's against to get the right %? Do I do it compared to 3.73's or just leave it because that's what came stock???

Since that was what the computer was programmed for stock your fine with leaving it. You would only have to mess with it if you had something else stock.

anyone have codes for other gauges, besides the ones listed on scangauge's site?
ive been looking for a/f for the ranger, i know for the cavaliers there is a code for it.
anyone dynoed their truck to compare with the gauges readings for hp and ctq?

why would you want to use rpm and speed on the scan gauge when you already have those on the cluster? i use TPS, TIMING, GPH, and MPG(the one from the trip computer displayed as a guage) after months of driving with these settings figured out that they helped more with my driving habits than anything else

these things look kinda cool! can someone show me their "mirror mount"?

does the trans temp feature actually work?

does it correct for tire size on the OE gauges as well?

is there issues with using one of these on a 2006? i think i remember there was something... but rich's truck is a 2006...?

I would prefer a WB02 and a vacuum (or vacuum/boost) gauge over a scangauge.

wow, all this stuff yall do with your scangauges, lol. I just ran the wire through the dash and plugged it in. The only changes ive done is set the color, tank size, and engine size. Other than that i didnt see all these special settings yall have. Then again, I have no idea where the manual went, lol

Any of you have a photo of yours mounted up by the mirror?

As of now, I have mine in the cubby hole under the HVAC control, it's to low to glance at it at times.

Sorry to bring up a dead thread but are there any cheaper readers? I just want something that will read my codes. Or is there a manual way to check the codes?

Autozone will do it for free. You can pick up a OBDII reader for about 40 bucks, I highly recommend the Scangauge though
