Have read a lot of the old threads on the Scan Gauge and can't find many complaints. Unless some one can talk me out of it I'll place my order in a day or two. I can buy it from Amazon with free shipping for $159.95 and using my Chase Platinum card will give me another 5% off. I'm guessing/hoping there will be no sales tax but can't tell until I get the order completed. For the record I tried Camping World and they say it is in stock but when I tried to get the price they now say it is not available. CW's shipping charge was $5.75.
I'm looking to take advantage of the detailed fuel data along with precise tranny temps etc. It will be going on my 06 F-150 5.4L. Seems like a feature rich product with a good reputation. So what say you, Scan gauge II experts.... should I or if not, why? Also if anybody knows of better pricing I am all ears.
Regarding the ScanGuage 2, I've had 2 of them for around 4 years, one each on our F250 6.0 diesels. We got them on EBay..where the seller sells it with a black aluminum bracket that mounts it above the interior rear view mirror, out of the way, but easy to read without taking you're eyes off the road.
I sent them into ScanGuage recently to have them updated to the newest version...$25.00 each.
It has also been invaluable for a diagnostic reader for our other cars "trouble codes".

What is the preferred mounting position? If you mount it on the rear view mirror how much trouble is it to route the cable down to the OBD port? I was thinking velcro on the dash somewhere but am wide open to suggestions. Just like a Scan Gauge, keep the good info coming and thanks!
No complaints here. Had mine about 4 years or so, never malfunctioned once, even in -40* temps when my truck has sat outside all day. Great company to deal with too. I was a Beta tester for them for Trans temp and boost (instead of just MAP) on the last version of the 5.9L Cummins.

Bought mine 6 months ago due to advice on this forum. LOVE IT!
Mounted it on the dash, just inside of the drivers side pillar. Used the tape supplied and the wires were very easily hidden. View is perfect with no vision blockage.
Bought from local AutoZone for the same $160.
