I have the ScangaugeII, and use it as a dash gauge. Everything that Ford displays it will display, such as the Fuel Flows, Voltage, Load, Power, RPM, Instant Mileage, Boost, Fuel tank gauge, temperatures. So far I have not been able to read the fuel pressures, individual injector readings, I feel these are top in trouble shooting a diesel engine. The Diesel support is not as good as the Gas support. But for the price It is a great indicator, and possibly the best fuel economy unit available because the fuel economy is in the trottle positioning and driving style. It sure did show me what to expect from my truck.
I heard a lot other units will do more, but I can only talk about the unit I have. I feel that Diesel systems are not well supported by most Diagnostic units. I also Own the Proscan unit and its the same story for Diesels.
In addition the Hyperteck Max Energy units will be a 2 for 1 because they need to have no Codes on your truck to load in and they will erase them so your loading can be done. So far I use the ScangaugeII to erase any codes, because I have it in use all the time and its just pressing a few buttons to accomplish it.
