Primary screen on Scangauge?

Looking for opinions and techniques.

When driving which screen is your primary screen? Tank? Current?

If you use the 4 gauge which 4 do you watch together?

In city driving, I tend to watch current average, or today average, since that's the goal I'm focused on. Cruising, I watch Instant because it helps most for driving with load (DWL).

My biggest improvement to the SG would be to have the ability to show Instant and Current AVG on the same screens. That would save me having to flip back and forth.

On the 4 gauges screen, I switch that one around a fair bit: I keep an eye on FWT and VLT (on the occasions I'm driving without the alternator). Also RPM, since the car has no tach. I'll probably start watching intake air temp again, as it'll soon be time to hook up the HAI again.

I leave the screen in instantaneous 'gauge' mode while driving (checking my tank avg after each leg of my commute). I've experimented over the last year with what four things to watch, currently set to:

current average when trying to get it up higher but most of the time the 4 screen RPM MPH MPG GPH or Water temp, Air Temp, LOD, Ign timing
RPM - - - MPH
MPG - - - GPH or WT and sometimes AIT LOD

I wrote SG and asked if Current/Today Average MPG could be made available on the 4 screen but no reply.

IAT- Intake temp, WTP Water temp
I switch around some with ignition timing and throttle postions but most leave it on this set up.

I prefer Airspeed, Attitude, Altitude, Heading. Oh wait, I'm thinking of something different.
