Default Re: Ultra Guage

I've had one for a few weeks now. I really like it. Instant MPG is just one of the many gauges that will help you increase your mileage.

I have mine set up with Instant MPG and average MPG as the top two larger readouts.

The lower four gauges I use right now are as follows:

Intstant GPH (gallons per hour)
Short trip MPG; this tells you the MPG for each trip (resets on each start)
Engine temp (coolant)
Battery voltage

I think I am going to change instant GPH to engine load. I want to see the %load as I accelerate.

If you want it to really read accurately, you need to calibrate it. During my current tank of fuel, I am running the calibration. Reset on fill up and tell the gauge how many gallons at next fill up. This will get me pretty close to true MPG. My odometer is reading 13.1 miles for every 13.0 miles traveled, so I'm not going to change that calibration for now.
