With your 15 wheels, did you find the default speed/miles reading on the SG was dead on? I checked miles for a 5 mile stretch against mile markers on freeway this morning, and it was right on! So, I guess that means I can believe it's speed readouts without adjustment.

P.S. I'm also interested in how others have routed the cable. So far mine's in the drivers glovebox, with cable trailing down the front. Not a great long term arrangement.
Congrats on your tank, higher air temp should produce higher mpg, but you will use your AC more.

Yep speed and miles dead on.

My cable is the same way at least for the time being.

It is mostly a real time guage for:
Fuel Economy
Fuel Rate
Battery Voltage
Coolant Temperature
Intake Air Temperature
Engine Speed (RPM)
Vehicle speed (MPH)
Manifold Pressure
(not available on some vehicles)
Engine Load
Throttle Position
Ignition Timing
Open/Closed Loop

and a trip computer for:
Maximum Speed
Average Speed
Maximum Coolant Temperature
Maximum RPM
Driving Time
Driving Distance
Fuel Used
Trip Fuel Economy
Distance to Empty
Time to Empty
Fuel to Empty

and finally a scan code reader:
Reads Trouble Codes
Reads conditions that set the Trouble Code
Clears Trouble Codes
Turns off "Check Engine" light

Tells you when vehicle is "Ready" to pass OBDII testing
Make and store up to 10 rewritable special codes
to send to the vehicle computer

MY Cable is also trailing down along the left side of Steering Column..not exactly pretty right now but i've got it "taut" enough that i never even touch it with my knee. It looks like it will BE REALLY EASY to run the cable behind the plastic dash and drill a hole directly into the driver's glove compartment (<--only on a Yaris..driver's GC...hehe). If i can find another Driver's GC Cover, I will cut it so that my Tachometer and Scangauge fit flush into it, and PROPERLY run the cables so that the Driver's GC is still accessible and useable for storage.

mount

I mounted mine resting on the stearing column directly behind the steering wheel. Took some drawer liner from the wife. Doubled it up to get a little lift. One drop of super glue to the scan guage. Scotch tape the liner to the column. I now have a tach and MPH in the normal positon. The scan guage weighs nothing so one small piece of scotch tape holds it on the stearing column.

How are you guys installing these? How come I don't see any wires in any of the installs. Is everyone cutting holes in the area behind the Scangauge?

Most likely, that's what I'll do too. I wonder how everyone else that didn't mount it on the steering wheel column did it. I saw a pic of one on the forums mounted right in front of the speedometer, and couldn't see any wires.

Can't wait to get mine in a few days.

You didn't have to come out on the outside like that cable is plenty long enough to keep it on the inside and still plug it in

I just hit 47.2 the other day,try and beat that,I still had half a tank left.
I can get 40mpg with moderate accelaration,and 70-75mph on the road.

Got it done... thanks... I didn't realize that panel underneath the steering column detaches so easily.
