Instant MPG---------------Boost (xgauge; manifold abs. pressure minus 1atm.)
Intake Air Temp (F)-----Engine Load

I just got my SGII today, so I'm sure I'll be playing around with settings for awhile yet...

Instant MPG MPH
Water temp. Avg MPG


My scan gauge has has helped me take my truck from 26 mpg to 31 mpg. I have greatly adjusted my driving habits based on it's readings and seen the benefit. I am monitoring water temp as I have added a grill block. It's been said here before, this is the first mod you should make.

31 mpg in the S10 - you're already beating your original goal, Super22LL. Congrats. Isn't the SG great?

Instant mpg
Trip mpg (same as "current" screen)
Water temp - grill blocking
VLT / LOD / GPH / whatever else

The first two give me all I really need for maximizing mileage. At first the others were useful, but just for the learning period. VLT in the winter with EOC and headlights.

The lower right gets switched as needed. The others don't change.

Yeah Metro, the scan gauge is great. I thought it would be hard to meet my goal but it's come along very fast. I guess I need to set another goal lol.

The scan gauge has taught me how to drive, and the proper route to take to and from work. I haven't had to haul anything on this tank, it's been strictly work commuting. I plan on filling up today or tomorrow, so I'll have my new up to date MPG in my sig.

If you don't have a Scan Gauge, you need to get one.

I always monitor Instant and Trip MPG (well, L/100km).

The two others depends on how I feel, or if I want to pay close attention to something else. Usually they're: Boost, Air intake temp, Water temp, Load, Voltage...

I just got mine this week but right now I have:

AVG - - - - TPS
MPG - - - - fIA

I find the TPS helps me keep a steady throttle and the instant MPG helps me keep my foot out of it on takeoffs, I try to always stay above 10mpg instant.

Very preliminarily, my Escape seems less prone to kick out of OD up a hill when the IA is over ~105 dF, which would seem to say hot air gives it more power, can this be? I gotta play with it some more but maybe a WAI would be good for mine.

I just got the SGII a week ago, I have not messed with xgauge yet but plan to, I want to be able to check trans fluid temp and I think I want tank mpg instead of trip mpg on my gauge panel.

MPG - - LOD
GPH - - IGN

I think I'm going to replace GPH with OPENLP/CLSDLP and see how I like that.
