ScanGaugeII

How many people here are using a ScanGaugeII (or equivalent), how do you like it, and can you post pictures of how it is mounted? Here is a picture I found on another forum of one mounted in the dash opening next to the coin holder in a Ford E-450. Looks like a perfect fit.

I love mine, using on 2014 E450 chassis. Set to MPG, water temp and trans temp. I just mounted on top of dash with double sided tape, easy to move to any other vehicle.

X2, although I've not been able to get an accurate MPG reading on my Ecoboost. Great for monitoring 4 key functions at the same time. I monitor Boost, Coolant Temp, Trans Oil Temp, and Volts.

Used Velcro to attach mine up on the dash. Pretty cool mod but don't expect to get the rebate they promise. Click image for larger version

I have the ScanGauge2 with velcro attached to the dash right under the coin holder. Does look like a perfect fit in the photo. How does the dash insert pull out and is it an easy route down thru the dash to the OBD? Questions we answers too!
I currently have my display set for monitoring
volts
MPG
Trans temp
water temp

Looks like we need dash removal tools, $18 at Autozone.

Checked mine today. Close but SG2 is 1/4" too long and a bit too high. Would need to trim opening. Leaving mine alone.
I'm happy with it. Especially like the transmission and actual coolant temperature along with MPG current and actual.
Would have liked to insert it in space next to coins but can live with this.

I use the Bully Dog GT Tuner [diesel] which monitors all intel coming out of the OBD and is much small than the other monitors plus adds a tune to the motor if you want it.
