    i picked up this little guy about 6 months ago after seeing it on a commercial, and just going on a whim to see it there was a cheaper alternative to the scangauge II's out there, when i picked this one up, i paid $39.95 for it, now its at $59.95 after rebate, they have a great forum, and tech support, nice size, somewhat easy to operate




    The UG comes with the unit and mount



    Here are the Gauges for the Ranger (give or take)

    * Open/Closed Loop Emissions Status
    * Percent Engine Load
    * Engine coolant temperature
    * Short Term Fuel Trim Bank 1
    * Long Term Fuel Trim Bank 1
    * Short Term Fuel Trim Bank 2
    * Long Term Fuel Trim Bank 2
    * RPM
    * MPH
    * Ignition Timing Advance
    * Intake Air Temperature
    * Mass Air Flow Sensor output in grams/sec
    * Absolute Throttle Position Percentage
    * Bank 1 Oxygen Sensor 1 Voltage
    * Bank 1 Oxygen Sensor 2 Voltage
    * Bank 2 Oxygen Sensor 1 Voltage
    * Bank 2 Oxygen Sensor 2 Voltage
    * Distance traveled with Check Engine Light on
    * Mass Air Flow 2, Calibrated/Calculated
    * Instantaneous Miles Per Gallon (MPG)
    * Average Miles Per Gallon (MPG)
    * Average Miles Per Hour (MPH)
    * Average Gallon Per Hour (GPH) - general
    * Run Time - general
    * Distance - general
    * Fuel Used - general
    * Intantaneous Gallons Per Hour (GPH)
    * Fuel Tank Gallons Remaining
    * Distance to Empty(DTE)
    * Time to Empty (TTE)
    * Average MPH - trip
    * Average MPG - trip
    * Fuel Used Gallons- trip
    * Average Gallon Per Hour (GPH) - trip
    * Run Time -trip
    * Distance - trip
    * Oil Distance
    * Service Distance
    * UltraGauge Temperature

    Like mentioned above, the Gauges are displayed on three pages in "slots." Each slot is assigned a letter like so:



    With the Ford Ranger, there is no fuel sensor (to my knowledge). We have a float attached to a sending unit that measures based on height of fuel in the tank. SOOOOO the UG has to be calibrated. You have two calibrations you can perform. One is distance and the other MPGs.


    This should give you a basic understanding of the Ultra-Gauge.

    here is the short of the review, and alot of copying, and pasting, all the info was posted by dixie_boysles

    Highly recommend this product! Great way to keep track of MPG's and other vehicle stats. And instead of 2 thumbs up, I'll go Clinton style and give it a 5 out of 5 on the mooseknuckle chart!
