ScanGauge II

From the factory, your vehicle’s computer is calibrated for the masses, designed with the average driver in mind, not the performance enthusiast.

With the ScanGauge II you can begin to monitor your vehicle’s engine performance, speed, coolant temperature, gas mileage and a whole lot more! Keeping an eye on your vehicle’s vital components will prevent disaster from happening. This little gadget will fit in any vehicle and does A LOT!

We have had the ScanGauge II installed in our ’05 Powerstroke and haven’t even touched a quarter of its capabilities. Being that we haven’t towed all winter we are excited to play with the ScanGauge this summer when we have about 10,000 lbs. behind the truck! Anything for a little better mileage, right?!?

Outstanding Features The ScanGaugeII serves as a scanner for DTC or also known as Diagnostic Trouble Codes. If ever your car encounters problems that would require troubleshooting, the warning light automatically turns on. This is GREAT as it keeps you from having to head to your local parts store to get your vehicle scanned!

Reliable Performance Monitor Apart from its troubleshooting capacities, there is also a performance monitor where the SCT Scangauge IIperformance details are shown. Using the LCD display, you get to see performance measurements like the speed, distance and time. We’ve been monitoring the EGT’s on the display as well to make sure we don’t overheat the truck…that would spell DISASTER!

Fuel Efficiency ScanGaugeII provides real-time data about your vehicle’s instant and average fuel economy, fuel used, the cost of fuel used for each trip, cost per mile, gallons per hour and more! Any vehicle owner should definitely want to have efficient usage of fuel and you can’t do that without a monitoring device. With ScanGaugeII, consumers will obtain certain information regarding the amount of fuel used, the cost of fuel used and the cost per mile. With these pertinent details, drivers can easily make the necessary adjustments based on the fuel costs as shown by the vehicle monitor.

In the long run, drivers can cut down fuel costs and they can search for options to be able to have efficient fuel use for their vehicles. This is so important especially since the price of gas keeps going higher and higher. Are you still having doubts if this would be a smart purchase? If so then make sure you gain even more knowledge on how beneficial the ScanGaugeII really is.

Installing the ScanGauge II was SUPER simple! All you need is the 6-foot cord that easily detaches from your OBDII connection port and plugs into the ScanGauge II device. The best part is, there are no tools required for your install! So if you are lookin’ to surprise your Hubby, this might be a GREAT present! You will simply mount the ScanGauge unit on the dash or console. We ended up putting ours on the windshield in the bottom left corner so the driver can still see it while driving, but, it is out of the way and doesn’t obstruct driving.

I think the hardest part about the ScanGauge II is setting it up and figuring out all the uses that it carries. Being that my Hubs is an ASE Master Certified Tech, works with diagnostic tools every day and is a Gear Head himself, this part has been a bit tricky. So be prepared to spend some time learning the device! However, in the end for the SALE price of $159 at (RV $169) and the dollars you’ll be saving with your better fuel mileage, I think it all works out in the end!
