Interesting, I didn't look at the speed the SG2 puts out, its not a gauge I used - I assumed it was getting the same signal from the ECU that the instrument pack gets so I never checked that with GPS.

And I did a trip last week involving GPS - DOH!

Looking forward to more info and notes to compare against

Whats your static and max MAP ?

so if the ratings in europe dont reflect reality-is there a certain generic weighting you can apply to the figures to give indicative values?

My instrument panel claims 103-105 km/h when the GPS says 100, the ScanGauge agrees with the GPS.
I believe it's something about speedos showing a higher speed than actual for both safety and performance reasons. But the real info is in there, only the speedometer signal is scaled.

That's exactly what I have found as well.

The Scangauge reads the same as the GPS.
Speed indicated on both is within 1 km/h - which is the smallest variation both show.

The Volvo tacho OTOH, reads some 3 km/h high all across the normal speed range.


BTW : The Volvo CC is very good at keeping a very steady pace.

Using 20-25 % more fuel than the official fuel rating is still considered to be normal ... or even good FE.
Nobody really expects to be able to achieve the official FE in their daily driving.

I didn't have MAP showing.

Turns out I'm not getting FPR IGN TPS TFC and LP inputs
FPR is seldom reported according to the manual, but I'd have liked to see the other values.

I glanced at mine a few times. Idle pressure is under 15, the largest I've seen is 31, but it could be more as I usually keep my eyes on the road when accelerating hard.

Don't expect IGN in a diesel!! I also don't get LP, TFC or FPR either. I'll have to see if I have TPS.

Idle @ 14.5 kPa
Max. I've seen was just over 33 kPa (going up an incline).
Min. 11.5 kPa (engine braking)

Doh ! What was I thinking ...


Though the tank is not looking really good anymore (remaining distance is dropping like a brick), I'll go over 1000 km/tank - but probably not by much.

1045 km @ 4.58 L/100km (51.4 mpg)

It has taken some effort, but I finally got my first 1000+ km tank

1045 km (649 miles) with 60 km remaining range indicated

Fuel economy was also a personal record : only 4.58 L/100km or 51.4mpg (US)


Guess what : I forgot to use the fill-up function of the ScanGauge. Doh !
