    So I just installed a scangauge into my truck, and i have to say I'm very pleased with it. I know a lot of taco nuts on here have one, so I'm not special in anyways. I do have to say tho that this was a very nice investment. I wonder what all you other scangauge owners think of yours.

    thanks for reading my little rant.

    Isn't a rant usually aimed towards the negative? Glad to hear you're happy with your SG... so am I!

    By saying Rant you probably get more attention. I can get 8 to 10 more mpg if I pay attention to Scanguage. I want to check my mpg on a total trip. If I take a trip or just stop on the way home from work to pick up something and shut the truck off the Scangauge starts all over again so I just get my mpg for each leg of a trip not the total trip. Do you know how I could get my mpg for a total trip or where to look or a link ?[​IMG] Thanks for your help.[​IMG]

    I have seen how everyone has them but never paid them any mind. I dont even know what they really do. Guess I'll look into them know.

    Wow, for some reason this whole time I thought they were around $1000!! That''s why I never paid attention to them. Think I found my next mod...
