I'm a newbie to SGII also. I just installed mine in my 2000 Insight this week.

FIA GPH

IGN LOD

I already have instantaneous MPG, trip MPG, H2O temp and RPM on the instrument panel.

Wish I could figure out how to program the X gauge to show when I'm in lean burn, but I can usually tell just from the feel of the car and the instantaneous MPG readout.

I'm still in the process of calibrating the fuel flow and the odometer functions. At an average of 81 mpg, I don't get many opportunities to fill the tank for calibration purposes!

Someone I know who uses the SG with a Civic indicated that he watches the IGN closely.

How does this gauge help?

I don't know enough to make use of the ignition timing reading but I've been curious about it as well.

How si the IGN display used? It sort seems to move relative to the LOD display.

I just got my SGII last week and have been tickled at the amount and instantaneous availability of the data. The book that came with it is OK but it doesn't go into depth with regard to all of the different gauges that are available. I've enjoyed gleaning knowledge from this site but I'm wondering. Is there a website that anyone can refer me to that would contain a comprehensive explanation of the powers of the ScanGauge?

If there is a single source, I haven't found it. Usually I find what I need from forums like these or over at CleanMPG with dedicated sub-boards for Scangauge discussions.

UPDATE:

Avg FE Current Trip
MPG
TPS
LOD

The ign display shows the total ignition timing currently used. When running at it's most efficient levels or at very high RPM the timing tends to be more advanced.

I've notice when my Insight 5 speed is in "lean burn" mode the timing is anywhere from 26-30 degrees BTC. If I pop out of lean burn, the timing retards. This makes sense as a leaner, more efficient mixture combusts more slowly and needs more advanced timing to thoroughly burn.
