    Ok I have heard a lot of people talking about this and seen them in a few pictures of the trucks on here. What is a scan gauge? What is its purpose?

    The hardest part about the install, is figuring out where you want to mount it.

    How does the calculated MPG work on lifted trucks... since the Scan Gauge plugs directly into the trucks system... it is reading an odometer the isn't truly accurate. Is there a way to adjust this calculation on the Scan Gauge?
