OBD 2 Scanner

Can anyone in this forum recommend a OBD II Scanner that I can use on my 2005 Pace Arrow, W24 Workhorse Chassis with 8.1L gas?

The best you can afford! Most over the counter scanners will only read generic codes not manufactur specific. Try to find one that has software for chev specific non generic codes. Generic would include any detected problem that will raise emmissions 20 percent. None generic would include most trans codes, all abs codes and some engine codes. You could spend less than $100 for a generic only or as much as 4k for a top of the line snap-on or similar. Look for one somewere in the middle.

Someone in the Workhorse Chassis forum recommended the Scan Gauge 2, but it does a lot more than just read codes. I'm afraid for $160 that I'm getting a lot of things that I probably won't use.

UltraGauge OBDII Scan tool & Information Center

I've had this one a couple years. Tells me what I need to know about my 8.1.

$60

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

I have ScanGuage 2 on my Ford. Proves me transmission temp which was biggie to me. Also fuel mileage average and current. And if needed all its diagnostic scanner capabilities. So was worth the money to me.

I have a Scangauge II and monitor oil pressure, water temp, tranny temp, current MPG. Use on board computer for ave MPG. It will do much more including codes! Purchased from OEM on the Workhorse site with 8.1 pre-programmed. Good luck.

After recording first fill-up I neglected to followup. Always seemed to be in a hurry to get back on the road. However it self calibrated over several fill-ups to match the on board computer MPG. As I use the reading for consumption rate change I don't worry about it. Thanks.

Edge products Insight CTS monitor. Great monitor, code reader and will also clear the codes.

I checked the scan gauge to see how many gallons it said I had used. I adjusted the scan gauge plus or minus to what I actually used. I did this a couple of times and it is now always very close.

To calibrate the Ultragauge they have you drive a measured mile at about 55 to 60 mph. You click at the start and click at the finish and it is then calibrated.
