    Anyone out there have an after market system that monitors oil pressure, mpg, oil temp, etc.?

    Do any of y'all have a scan gauge or ultra gauge? If so, how do y'all like them?

    UG here as well. I like it better than the SC. One big reason is it seems like a more modern piece of equipment vs. the appearance of the SC.
    To me, the SC has a very 1980's look about it.

    I also have an ultragauge and like it a lot. It tells me everything I need to know.
    Started out with the torque app and a bluetooth obd2 reader. It was nice and worked ok, but I wanted something dedicated to it and not tieing up my phone.

    I have the Ultragauge, and overall, I love it. Fuel mileage ain't accurate worth a crap, sometimes says I have 120 miles to empty when I'm sittin' on "E". I gotta find time to read the manual, and see if I can figure out how to fix it. That being said...I still love it.

    Good deal. Is the mpg not accurate or is the miles to empty not accurate or both?
