    I just got an ultragauge last week along with some 285"s and it seems to be giving me very high mpg readings. City driving its about 16 but on the highway I can get the average mpg up in the 22 range. I drive redicuously slow all the time, I have passengers complain to me about my driving including my grandma who tells me to speed up. Is it possible to get 22+ mpg with 285's or is my ultragauge being a peice of crap? I have the distance perfectly calibrated to my 285's.

    Have you calibrated the distance and fuel mpg? there are instructions in the users guide. Mine was almost exact though without calibration.

    Nope I didnt think that affected the mpg reading, thats probley my problem. To do that I fill up, then go to partial fill up and match the number on the pump right?

    Mine just arrived today. Their are quite a few fuel settings if you search through the menu items....I also got 6 engine light codes as well. Mostly doing with the o2 sensors and maf. I am going to clean the maf first and then see what happens.
