Thanks, I will have to use that one in a few weeks on our next trip to Yosemite. Mine is GPH.
I wish the ScangaugeII would have another 2 displays, as I don't like to be shifting the displays around while driving.
MAU MAU, my new ScanGauge did the same thing, I emailed the company and they replaced it.
2005 F150 XLT Supercab LB Heavy Payload 5.4, 4.10
2007 Jayco Jayflight 31BHDS
Back-up camera on the TT with infrared & microphone
Reese duel cam hitch, U-bolt style ($40 at a garage sale)
2 canoes, 3 kayaks, & camping dog (Tootsie)
There is a Scanguage and a Scanguage-II. Is there a newer version Scanguage yet?
I own a 2007 Super Duty E350-V10 chassis. Which Scanguage is best for my chassis?
Also, I would like to mount it to my rear view mirror (actually to the backup camera I plan to relocate there). Is the length of cable long enough to fish it through the side pillar and head liner to get there? If not, is there an extension cable available?
There are 3 current models of ScanGauges. Scangauge II, Scangauge e and Scangauge D for diesel MH's and Semi trucks.
I would recommend the II. Gives you more info. Stock cable is 6' long. They do not list a longer one. But may make one if you call them.
For more data display. A Scangauge e can be daisy chained unto a Scangauge II. Scangauge site.
I just got back from the Phoenix rally which was a blast. I talked to the Scan Gauge guy and just asked him to show me how to use the thing and how to check for best mileage.
I did not realize if I hit Gauge on the first screen, that all four gauge displays could be changed by hitting the four buttons as they cycle through all the available functions. Well, you all may have realized that, but I just thought some buttons were for some functions and some for others so never hit them all through the cycle.
He said he thought the best way to keep mileage at the "sweet spot" which he said changes all the time based on wind and hills and other conditions, is to set the gauges to read current MPG and AVG. Then if you try to keep your current above your average, the average will always increase, which is your target performance. I did this on the way home and got an AVG of 10.8 coming across the city at about 65 mph. MPG numbers varied when I looked at them from about 5.8 to 16.7 or so! (Coasting from a higher speed or "roller coasting" as they called it above.)
Then I turned the engine off to empty the tanks and when I turned it on again the AVG went down to 7.0 so would have to build it back up again by driving at a higher MPG consistently enough to get a higher AVG. Driving at only 45 or so for the two miles to the house, I only got the AVG up to 8.5. So a faster, longer drive actually gave me better mileage than slower, shorter, travel.
It is fun to use the gauge function. I had just used the Fillup and Trip functions so far and really have had no need for the Scan function yet.
