I love my Scangauge. It did not include installation instructions so I used my imagination and came up with what I believe is a simple, inexpensive and safe install method. If you are interested just let me know and I will get back to you.

A scangauge or more correctly ScangaugeII is a device that plugs into the OBD port and gives you the option of a bunch of readouts, MPG, Water Temp, RPM, Speed, timng, etc. You can also track how far since last fillup, next fillup, etc, Kind of like a trip computer. It has the function to read engine error codes and clear them. In the development stage, the Area451 cruise will be letting the SGII program the throttle response.( Guess they are still working out the details) An awfully handy little device to have, you can set it up for other cars you own as long as they have the port. Simple to set up and just as easy to remove.

MPG is not 100% accurate, the best way is the old pencil and paper method.

Does anyone have pictures of the installation? And how well does it track MPG?

I mounted mine above the rear view mirror and ran an RJ45 extension cable from the sg along the top of the windshield, down the left side to the bottom of the dash (all under the molding). It is so light, it stays in place with velcro and looks pretty good, too.

i mounted mine with an articulated arm with a suction cup to the lower left corner of the windshield, the gauge is visible as being just over the left side of the steering wheel while driving, i could add photos later if you like.

Me too. I installed mine in 2008. I used velcro to mount it on the left side of the dash and ran the cord down between the dash and the sidewall. Very simple and looks good.
