New contest: one lucky forum member will win a ScanGauge-e MPG gauge



Up for grabs in our newest contest:
  • One ScanGauge-e: (generously provided by Linear Logic) the ScanGauge II's little brother (see comparison)
This OBD-II gauge does instant, average and trip MPG gauges, plus a host of other things like: digital instrumentation (eg. coolant temp, RPM, speed, and etc.), read & reset your "check engine light", and more.

I actually prefer the ScanGauge-e for monitoring MPG: the customizable bar graph is great for seeing how you're doing against your target (or your recent average) at a glance. (There's something to be said for graphical vs. numeric feedback.)

Product info from the manufacturer: https://www.scangauge.com/products/scangauge-e/

Also see: Tim's thoughts on the SG-e vs. the regular SG-II


Draw date: 1 month from today on April 6th, we'll draw randomly based on forum posts made between today and noon EST on that day. (So the more you post, the better your odds. But don't do anything crazy.)


Note: Winners must claim their prize within 10 days of the winners announcement (by contacting us via private message), or we reserve the right to draw another name in your place.


Good luck to everyone!

I like the look of that new model SG-e it's so tiny! It would be a prefect fit for the Prius C..
I'll keep my old SG-II for my SUV..

Might have caught on...there seem to be a lot more threads replied to today than there have been lately!

Could also just be a coincidence!
