    Default Fuel Average Device ?

    Is there any External Meter/Gauge/Device that I can install in my Corolla 2003 which can show accurate Average per litre the car is doing?
    Any suggestions are open.

    Scangauge II is the absolute best you can get.

    Ultragauge is a close second; it lacks some bells and whistles of the SG II, but for a casual user it is still more than enough, and its significantly cheaper. Many people also find it's readout clearer and more attractive than the SG II.

    Then there is the mpguino and superMID; it's almost impossible to find a superMID nowadays, but you can easily find an mpguino. If you are a DIY type with elementary knowledge of circuit analysis, logic design, and C programming, you can also build one yourself using an arduino and simple electronic circuit parts.

    Finally, if all of the above are too much of a hassle to get/to expensive to get, you can find a decent vacuum gauge and use it to fine-tune your throttle control; it gives much, much less information than any of the above devices, but it's still better than nothing.

    *edit: forgot to add: a compatible OBD2 dongle can be used with the Torque app (Android) or REV (iOS). Personally I'm not a big fan of either, but its an option nevertheless.

    Really appreciate the detailed response. My car is equipped with 1NZFE engine, tell me a gauge which measures exact mileage, availability at Pakistan is not an issue, I can import it from USA aswell. I need to know the right device for the engine, so I can order it furthermore. Also, how accurate are vacuum gauges? I need the average only.

    MPGuino looks good so far. Isn't pricey. Costs around 90 dollars including shipping.

    @usmanaliawan123 vacuum gauge doesn't tell you the fuel economy; it just gives an indication of how heavy your foot is on the throttle. It is an invaluable tool for diagnosing petrol engines though.

    The best bit about the mpguino is that it can be used in any electronic fuel-injected car, no matter its onboard diagnostics protocol, or lack thereof (Mehran efi and Daewoo Racer come to mind). It will be inaccurate at first though; you will have to calibrate it yourself through trial and error.

    Okay, well I'll also look into ScanGauge and UltraGauge. If they are the best.

    I would prefer Ultragauge over scan gauge because of better display options.
    Rest both cover the same sensors values etc

    Yes exactly, ScanGauge looks like a cheap built.

    When I bought Ultragauge I had the option of scan gauge as well but I preferred Ultragauge because of its dimensions and better display options.

    Ultragauge is definitely better if you are more of a plug and play type of person. If you would like to monitor some hidden parameters of a specific make and model, then Scangauge 2 is better.

    Build quality of both should be excellent; they are USA made.
