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

Three vehicles do, they all work fine, they also indicate when the driver is calling for more fuel to be used for extra engine power, for whatever reasons.

Once you get your Go-Pedal foot trained to align with your traffic visionaries and break wasteful driving habits, then the read-out only becomes a calculator to glance at now/then.

You can then save some fuel going from place to place, even shorten engine run time, that counts, takes effort...Spend those $$ saved on the things of more importance!
