    I am thinking of buying one of these.I have heard of nothing but good on the Scan Gauge but the PLX Kiwi seems more simple without all the different readouts on one page.Has anyone got a opinion on the PLX Kiwi?It costs about half the price of a Scan Gauge also.The Kiwi is also a little smaller.

    The KIWI MPG unit is mostly just a MPG readout. It has code reading functions and some sensor readout but not much. The SG has many more features. Have you looked at the Ultragauge? That is a great unit as well and it is cheaper than the KIWI unit.
