SGII:

[RPM] [SOC]
[LOD] [FWT]

Sometimes I'll change the display to HPR and IGN for max economy.

-Instant MPG----MPH
-Tank Average---Coolant Temp

Still playing with different settings as the SGII is only 2 weeks old. Like it a lot so far since I can now view "Tank" average on the main screen

Guess Im the only one that likes the HP meter of the sg2?

I use HP, water temp, ign and cai.

Honda keeps their PIDS secret so no IMA information. I tried all the prius xgauges and none work.

I use different gauges for whatever im doing. UG can save multiple pages of gauges. typically im going for FE not racing

Not exactly, I experiment with different quantities of e85 with my regular fuel and tanks of 93 octane fuel. Different additions of ethanol has different effects on timing, power output and the power band itself. load is a pointless one to monitor as in econ it lugs the engine to 80% and in sport mode 60%. At times it goes less, so on the fence of going to a taller tire to help load up the engine continuous vs what seems like 50% of the time.

Ultragauge home screen:
longterm fuel trim, short term trim, engine load, rpm, trip mpg, instant mpg. On the back screens I have other useful ones, such as coolant temp and inatake air temp and lots of others.

ultragauge / 6 gauges / 1 screen

[ MAP ][ inst mpg ]
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
[ mph ][ trip mpg ]
[ coolant temp ][ trip miles ]

I use MAP for the pulses, and instant mpg for the glides.

Thanks for the replies.
After playing with the UG for a few tanks of fuel, I've come to really like Instant MPG, MPG short trip, Instant Gal/hr, throttle position, and coolant temp.

I'm looking forward to a few more tanks so I can see what kind of MPG increase the UG is helping me to achieve.

After having the ScanGauge a few weeks, I have settled on these settings

[Instant MPG] [Coolant Temp]
[Tank Average] [Gallons per hour]

Really cool to notice how even putting the heater fan on low increases consumption. Not pressing on the brake pedal while idling makes a slight difference as well.
