The UltraGauge is better than the ScanGauge in my opinion. It has a lot better display and I think it has all the functions (if not more) than the ScanGauge. Not only that, but it's only about $60 right now.

|OhSixTJ||Well the paid version shows voltage, among other things. There's are a lot more settings and customization possible. And my 15 minute refund period went by quick haha I guess I'm stuck with it.|

|InvisiblePants||Same one i got. You can always purchase the paid torque, try it and refund within 15 mins if it doesn't work. I'll have to check fuel level. My gauge is off my 1/3 of a ank anyway so i just watch my odometer.|

It doesn't show voltage or fuel level.

Is this what you need?

It can read all obd2 stats. Voltage is on the list...

Late to the party, but one more happy scangauge user.
I have an excel sheet i also track my mileage on and the scangauge is almost dead on. The only differences come from sometimes overfilling the tank.

For those with the paid torque app: does it shown voltage?
I'm using the free app and it doesn't show voltage.

|CountryBoyJeep||Hey thanks guys. The reviews helped a lot! Since everyone that has one likes it I think I'm going to go ahead and purchase one for myself|

|UnlimitedLJ04||I also have a Scangauge and love it. I also have a cheapo Bluetooth OBDII reader & free Torque app. I use a Y-adapter so both can run at the same time.|

|jgorm||you can calibrate the speed in the SG to match a gps and it will use that to calculate mpg. I use the speed on the SG because my speedo is off a lot now. The SG uses the # of fuel injected on each squirt to calculate the mpg, not the gas tank level.|

|bardb||Have it, recommend it, plugs into the OBDII port. You'll get bored with the instantaneous MPG (which you tweak with every fill up), but you'll never start a post war about whether the key on, key off sequence will trigger a dash flash OBD code display on your Jeep|

I have the Scangauge also. Like all the above have indicated, it does read instant MPG and can do average as well as monitor a lot of PCM parameters in cluding MPH/tire adjustment. I the Scangauge for MPH when I got the TJ. The PO had not changed the speedo gear with the 33's.
I admit I have not used the MPG average. SIMPLE math will tell you the average

|kdilly||Can it account for bigger tires w/o changing the speedo gear? I have 33's so I was wondering if there was a setting or something that would take that into consideration.|

If a division problem is too taxing for you, how about a smartphone app?
I use Fuel Log on Android.
I know it's not real time . . . just suggesting an alternative to the math thing.

I have a scangauge definitely worth the money IMO. The fact that it acts as a code scanner is worth the price alone, all the gauges and information are a nice bonus.
As for fuel milage calculation it isn't simply reading the fuel gauge. In fact the fuel sensor in the tank isn't a publicly known PID for our Jeeps. It's instead calculated through a number of other sensors/data and is pretty accurate.

The scan gauge will learn. It try's to guess the amount of fuel left. When you fill up it gives a estimate of the amount of fuel used. Each time you fill up you input the correct amount vs. what the gauge thinks you have used. After 5 or 6 fillup's it will be within a few tenths of the actual fuel used. I have used one a lot for over 4 years. It's a pretty neat toy.
|04-24-2013 10:20 PM|
That's the exact way the scan gauge functions. In the actual mileage window it computes from the ecm which reads miles on the odometer or fractions thereof and the throttle position sensor and fuel flow as determined by the ecm. It is the same method vehicles with that factory option use. It changes every second and is reflected on the gauge. It's best use it to monitor your driving habits and see the changes you make reflected in the readings. It can also monitor the trans temp. which is very important if your towing. I don't use it on the jeep but use it on my motorhome and ford truck when towing.

The only thing that will truely tell you your actual fuel mileage is fuel used versus miles traveled and thats at the mercy of the accuracy of your odometer.
All the aftermarket gadgets are just toys built to amuse you and make someone else a buck.
If you want a way of estimating your instant mileage add a simple vacumn guage tapped into your intake manifold vacumn. When it reads low vacumn your getting poor mileage when it reads high vacumn your getting better fuel mileage.
