Factory or aftermarket. If it does, is it a good predictor of your actual MPG?

Very accurate, but I have to get gas at the same station as there is a differnce in the length of the gas pump pipe station to station and that throws off the MPG. Usually I constantly start it up a zero again and boy does that show the differnce between in town and highway mileage.
