Oh..I thought it was tank average all this time which is why I didn't like it.

Perhaps I should have read the scangaugeII manual..

I guess I will give AVG MPG a try, it might help !

I will use the AVG alot.
if I'm on a flat stretch of hway I'll hit reset and set the cruise at 60 or 65 to see w'hat my 'HIGHWAY Mileage" is at. I may run 10-15 miles to get a good feel.

Thanks for all your input! Question about LOD: what is it actually monitoring? I know it's for engine loading, just not sure what it is for...

basicly it's relative. my load at 60mph on a flat road is different from your load same conditions.
bASICLY IT'S how much of its `'ability' is it using.

For more info check the manual.

If I remember correctly, LOD is the percentage of power being used at a given RPM.

I do:

AVE.............Tank

I do a lot of target driving, NICE-ON. Sometimes I'm watching IAT (WAI in the Metro, intercooler block in the Dodge), just depends.

I think that is correct for most engines. For some its the % of total power being used which is much less useful to us.
