They're usually not that easy to match, but it's definitely possible

I haven't yet got a OBDII reader to get the actual values, but here's for hoping
You get the actual values from the odometer and when filling up, not from an OBD reader or scangauge - those may be off and may need calibration using actual tanking.

You will love having the gauge. Driving becomes a game.

My ScanGauge was off from manually calculated fuel consumption by a fair amount, but I was able to calibrate it over time and now it's very close (within a few percent, typically).

I'm also excited about being able to see the temperatures, pressures etc. as that will make me more confident to do some mods.

It would be good if you could log your fuel consumption and odometer reading along with average ambient temperature to see how the FE relates to outside temperature and other variables. Probably something I'll take a look at myself once I have enough data to exclude other variables.

Happy christmas!
