Thanks for the advice guys. Much Appreciated.

For those who have a Scangauge, where have you installed it? A photo would help!


Consider the Ultragauge if you want something that's easier to read and doesn't look like 90's tech.

Also remember that to be accurate for fuel and speed/distance all the OBD2 type readouts have to be calibrated to the car. People seem to forget that.

My Scangauge 11 sits on top of the dashmat secured with velcro.

When I brought mine the Ultragauge was still new and I was not certain if it would work, i knew the SC11 did work.

My SC11 shows the same speed as my Garmin GPS in my Patrol with out any calibration , I think it did in the Dmax as well , fuel , distance to m/t ect , I didn't bother with that .

Pure luck. Change tyre or rim size and all bets are off. I have had to recalibrate for the three different sized tyres I have run on the Dmax. Only a little but a few percentage points nonetheless for both size changes but about 7% from smallest to largest.

:lol: yeah Danno but the Pootroll has all that fuel computer crap as std .
It sure is different in many ways compared to that Dmax , it's very comfortable Cruise's very nicely so far it's not to bad on fuel , I have just clocked up 10k it's averaged 14.4 lt x 100k , worked out by the distance and fuel used , computer usually shows .6 to 1lt better .
I have only had it in real 4WD country one time and haven't towed the Tvan yet , but we are about to hook it up and drive to Malanda to deliver a Tvan ( not ours ) and drive home not towing , should be a interesting comparison.
