So you don't have a ScanGauge II. Hmm What r u waiting 4? Quick read!

I have a 2013 Ford Fiesta S, which is a 5 speed, and I'm going to quickly tell you what a difference a ScanGauge makes in mileage.

I've got about 25,000 miles on it and bought it new for $13,900.

I've always tracked my mileage tank after tank religiously.

I've always got around 41-42 MPG Hwy & 32-33 around town.

I bought the ScanGauge II and it "modified" my driving habits considerably.

I now an obsessed with the Guage and it's resulting output.

I never knew that the Fiesta shut down the fuel injectors @ anything over 1,500 RPM's with your foot of the throttle. Yes really. That's using no fuel thus no horsepower thus greater gas mileage going downhill in gear rather than coasting in neutral. Did you know that?

With a ScanGauge you learn that and lots more.

I now get, using pen and paper, just over 48 MPG with mostly highway driving.

Moral of the story.... Get a ScanGauge II & the sooner the better.
