Default ScanGuage II - Does it really help save fuel?

I'm sure a lot of you must have already heard of or seen the ScanGuageII. For the uninitiated, this is quite a dandy toy that plugs into your OBD II (On-Board Diagnostics II) connector and reads out some pretty funky data. Question now is... has anyone here used it on the Swift?
I own a month old Swift which is a smooth drive. I'm about a good month away from the nearest delivery of this gizmo.
Hep me out with this and lets see what it can do.
Look up this: ScanGaugeII - Trip Computers + Digital Gauges + Scan Tool

Looks interesting. Does it show real time fuel consumption? Wonder how useful it'll actually be.

Hi
ScanGuage2 does not work in Swift.It just shows "Connecting".I have one with me which I bought for my Lancer but it doesn't work in my car also.I tried in Baleno and no hope.In fact in hyundai cars it works,but Innova it doesn't.
Now I am trying to check it in different cars.Will post the results soon
Cheers
DilipKumar

Hi Adrena,

Where did you read that this product help increasing/saving Fuel. It is a reader only which shows you data. it cannot change values on your ECU.

If it is supported by an indian firm it would have been ok. Without proper support it is not worth a try.
