    Just ordered a Scangauge E. Questions.

    Hi all,

    So If everything goes right I will be the new owner or a 17 se hatch 5spd next week.

    I found a great deal looking online for the scangauge e. 74.95 new on advance auto. It was 100 but had a 25% off code.

    I currently have a 2008 Elantra and have been using a autometer eco meter for about 7-8 years. But from the looks of it, the scangauge is going to blow the eco meter away.

    Anyone have the sg e? How do you like it?
    I liked it was cheaper than the sg2 and for me being used to 1 display I'm okay having 2 at once plus the mpg graph vs no graph and 4 items.

    I also looked at the UG but honestly like the looks of the sg products with adjustable back light colors to match any dash. I like the small size of the sge too.
    It seems the sg website is better too imo.

    I mainly drive city and am looking forward to going from 29-31 city in the Elantra to 40 plus right guys?

    Welcome to the forum.

    40mpg city isn't really a big goal -- you'll knock it out every tank!

    Many members have hit 60+

    (US gal / mile)

    Thank you!


    Oh wow that would be excellent. So I'll probably put the goal for the sg graph like 45mpg? Would that be a good goal? I drive 95% city.

    I do work for good mpg but not as hard as I could. That may change with the Mirage.

    Currently I just accelerate slow and brake very lightly and coast off throttle if I can without losing too much speed. And of course coast to red lights.

    Browse the forum's Fuel Economy Log. There, members can track the fuel consumption and show the rest of the world how they are doing.

    The fuel economy log proves the fuel economy of the Mirage wasn't fake or misreported, like what happened to Mitsubishi Motors with their kei cars in their home market of Japan. Many Mirage owners easily improve on the EPA rating.

    Two members are *averaging* in the mid- to upper 60 mpg range. Many are in the 40's.



    Be sure to make a garage entry for your new car.
    Garage empty: add car

    Then you can start tracking your fuel consumption here too.

    I've got the ScanGauge E. I like it, but it's the only gauge I've ever used.

    I've got a '15 5-speed. I'm in central Ohio, and drive 5-6 miles to work, mostly 40mph road. 10 stop lights, I seem to hit at least 6 red lights. In the summer, driving like you do, I usually get around 45mpg. In the winter, I lose a couple, but still often get at least 40mpg. It was brisk 14f (windchill of 7) out this morning, I used my block heater, and still got 42mpg. I think you'll be pleased.

    Awesome. Thanks for the links. If the alignment checks out we will be picking up the cars next week.

    Pics to follow of course.

    And thanks for your review wellswebdesign

    Depending on you you drive you should get 40mpg no problem! I've been checking the avg from trip B on a lot of the cars that come in my shop for service. They vary between 5l/100kms 47 us mpg to 6.2l/100kms 38mpg which I think is pretty good considering most drivers here don't care about getting good fuel economy in a company car and I'm sure they get driven like they're stolen! These are all cvt cars though.

    So do you work at a mitsubishi shop or just a shop in general?
    How are the mirage's for reliability and what do you see them come in for?
    Have you seen many with the rear axle alignment issue?

    I'm the fleet mechanic for a company that uses the car's for delivering car parts. Right now we have 20 15's and 13 17's. They have been very reliable! I did change the cat on one car at 230000kms, it's now got over 250k and still runs good. I also changed one ign coil on a car with around 130k, otherwise they just need basic maintenance. My only complaint is getting parts from our dealership, they aren't cheap and they rarely have anything in stock. We had them pulling parts off a car on the lot when I needed an inner tie rod. (car hit the ditch and tow truck hooked onto the tie rod instead of control arm..) I'm sure that isn't the case everywhere and thankfully we've only needed stuff from them a few times.

    I skipped rotating the tires on one car for 24k and it started wearing the tires horribly, alignment checked out at the shop I use though I didn't see the specs. I just rotate the tires every 6000km and haven't seen any strange tire wear on any car since. We just run cheap sailun tires once the factory ones are toast which doesn't take long.
