UltraGauge

Pretty stoked cause I just got my UltraGauge the other day and needed to tell someone that will understand. The wife could care less lol. It has already made me a better driver with in a few hours of installing it. Almost have it calibrated and had my highest tank ever....39.17 mpg. Pretty amazing for a car that is originally only supposed to get 30mpg on the highway. And I probably have less than $100 worth of mods to the car including the UltraGauge.

P.S. Thanks for being their for me guys lol.

It's quite addicting! Like say, if you're driving professionally and have nothing else to concentrate on for long stretches. (:

I still need to calibrate my ultra gauge, I don't think I've been doing it properly.

They do make driving such fun. As others have pointed out, driving a car without one feels unsettling now.

I also just recieved my UG. Im eagerly looking forward to seeing some FE improvements. Being able to see your g/p/h/ fuel rate and instant mpg will be a big help.

I am sort of wondering how much of my recent jump is from the UG. Went from averaging 36 to 39.

After it is calibrated, you can trust the meter itself. But having the feedback will definitely improve your driving; and if you are comparing tank averages, then it is a good thing!

So with the UG I am able to keep it up around 37mph while driving around town. I am currently at about 32 mpg for the whole tank. Its great to have that instant feedback.
