I have it in one of my cars, but it displays only over 35 km/h, so you don't know anything under this speed
Newer cars has the display at slower speed and has a hourly consumption under that minimal speed.

But the scangauge will brought you much more. My cars aren't SGII compatible, but the few times I could test it on other cars then I was surprised by how much the load can vary depending on your actions and the road changes.

20 years old, at least. My 1987 Cadillac Sedan Deville had it, and the 1988 Acura Legend had it too.

I remember reading in my 1980 Pontiac's manual there was an optional "economy" gauge that replaced the dashboard clock. It was an analog gauge with a red and green areas marked. I don't think it was anything more than a vacuum gauge though.

I rent a lot of cars because I travel for work, and the Chevy Cobalt, Malibu and HHR all have it.

I was thinking about the digital type gauges when I typed that post. I remember that "economy" gauge now that you mention it. You are going waaaaay back into ancient history now. A little more and you will be BC (Before Cars).

Now stop that....you are making me feel old....haha

AFAIK higher end Chrysler products had it starting in the early - mid 80's. My mom's 88 LeBaron had it, and I think it was available on my dad's 85 Plymouth Caravelle. The 85 Caravelle was a really nice car on the longer K-car wheelbase. Dad would have bought it from his company at the end of the lease, but we were rear ended in it a month before he turned it in, and he didn't want to buy a 1 year old wrecked car with 100,000 miles on it.
