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

Yes and on the warmer recent days the MPG readings are higher, if all 4 tires are aired very proper. I normally aired the front a few lbs. higher, lately, came arround to making all four the same pressure, vehicle rolls better.
Still many chuck-holes/pot holes about, terrible near many business entries/exits, about everywhere locally. March/April wind gusts affect My FEM, and I chose calmer days to drive distances if possible.

Yes, but with qualifications. You must use the same gas station and fill the exact amount each time. Different stations have different shut offs and longer and shorter nozzles. If you over or underfill it will be different from your written log. My suspicions are with the mileage indicator while your driving.

No my old 2011 Caliber didn't come with one but I'll definitely look for one in my next car.

Factory. Seems to get a very accurate reading considering it probably measures the Air/Fuel ratio and adjusts accordingly.

First fillup on new hybrid meter says 38.3mpg, vs. actual 38.68mpg. Pretty darn close.

Factory. It's pretty close to the numbers I get from the pump + odometer.
