Best MPG Ever!

This was fun to see. When I went up to Mt. St. Helens today I had stopped at the top of the pass to take some pics. When I start up my Scanguage2 always records MPG from that point. The next 6+ miles were downhill & it was amazing to see the MPG reading go up a lot farther than the Corolla readout can show. As I saw the MPG go up it was interesting to see the coolant temp drop & the outside temp go up as the elevation dropped.

The first pic I took as the MPG readout was higher then I had ever seen it!


Over 600 mpg!


Over 700 mpg!


Over 800 mpg & still going up!


I can't believe my eyes as it passes 1200 mpg!


This was peak at the bottom of the hill, over 1600 mpg as the road levels out.


This where I ended up when I was getting back on I-5 southbound.....60 mpg. I might have to try this in my Prius & see what I get!

On your second screen, I see your low tire pressure light is on, so I would recommend you put some air into your tires. Maybe you would get an even better reading.

It stays on when I have my winter tires on as I don't transfer my TPMS each time I switch my winter & summer tires. Most people using winter tires just live with the light, no big deal.

Me either, that's why I don't had a clue what it's supposed to mean.

It means "Over 9,000" lol.

I seriously wonder why the MPG reading can go as high as 9,999 lol.

Not sure how it means "over 9000" but okay. That's the instant readout & goes to that when you are going downhill & are off the throttle since you aren't using any gas in a full vacuum mode.

Yeah, but I'd think 99 MPG would be just fine lol.

Most of the that is true but it is nice having at least 3 digits to see how high it goes. Since the Scangauge2 can be used for all types of cars though it needs more then 99 MPG for electric & hybrid cars. I just thought that it was fun to see what happened with the readings since I started at the top of the hill. If I had some regular driving before heading down it never would have been that high.

Nice. i was happy with getting a solid 34.x MPG from Albany to Portland and back tonight.

On a side note how much hotter does your intake temps run than ambient? I was thinking I just changed my scangage to show LOD and ambient, and noticed that my intake temps were about 10-15 f hotter than the toyota ambient (which is 5+f hotter than a house gauge).

basically i think i will put the plastic piece and the flex tube back on and pipe to the fender to see in cold air helps out my MPG a little. no reason in the rummer ot run 20+ deg above ambient. this also may have something to do with my having an upper grill block off.


also here is the reference explained. humor not wasted on this one.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...rm=Over%209000

http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/its-over-9000

note the fact they got Oprah on air with this one is what makes it really stand out.
