Just ordered my scangauge!

I'm so excited. My car (even though it's 5-spd) doesn't have a tach, so it'll be nice to know what the engine is doing!

I look foward to playing around with the other settings as well.

Have you been "tracking & recording" you fuel economy numbers (ie: MPG) in the past? If yes, then you'll have an excellent "baseline" from which to compare how much BETTER your car achieves as you use your ScanGauge to "teach you" toward better milage!

Congratulations!

Yeah, I've been keeping track as I fill up each time. I can't wait to see instant feedback though!

One thing I'm sure you'll learn soon enough for yourself is how much you'll come to *absolutely* HATE stoplights and pokey-drivers (ha,ha), because now the SG shows you immediately the penalty that each creates upon your average-MPG!

Speaking from experience, you WILL NOT regret your purchase.
