I think OBDII started in 1996. Of course MY diesel is 1995. Diesels also have a problem with electronic fuel monitoring systems since they recirculate fuel to the tank, so most gauges like this don't work even with OBDII.

Thanks for the info. It would be nice to get some of the other data to see if there is something wrong with my truck, or if it just sucks.

A vacuum gauge is better than nothing -- should work on diesels.

Question about ScanGauge II:

I looked at the ad, but it didn't have a lot of information. Does SGII do more than mileage and trip calculations? Does it read OBDII error codes? My Volvo already has a factory trip/mileage computer, but if the SGII does more than just duplicate it's functions, I DO need an OBDII code reader.

Nope, diesels don't use vacuum either. They're weird, but I love 'em.

Yes to error codes. It has more gauges than just those two but I like the SG because it can also show me the GPH, coolant temp, intake air, voltage, and digital readouts for MPH, RPM plus trip and tank info -- armed with that info, I can make mods and see if they're really worth my time or not.


EDIT:
Ah, my bad on vacuum then.

The scangauge can give you feedback on almost every sensor in the engine.

I had the sgI in my neon, then got a performance version by another company that fit in a 52mm pod. whatever you choose they are so worth it. You can take them along in any car. You are by no means "stuck" with this product ever.
