Yes and it often shows that I get the best mileage highway staying near 64....67 MPH. except when bucking a headwind I drop back to 58 often, that \seems to help regain a bit of fuel savings V/s expense. Why I don't know, must be an engine/load resistance thingee! Winds keep the indicator mighty active, even tail wind advantages!

Yes. at least 4. 2 on trip odometers, 1 current mpg, and 1 for 30 min mpg intervals. May have more, but haven't found a real need for any more.

Just another useless gadget on a vehicle, and you can use the trip meter to achieve the same results.

Yes, but I am not sure of the accuracy. It is off compared to what I measure by miles driven and fuel used.

Aftermarkets are available one must check that out if interested. Different mounting can be the big thing, vehicles dashes are quite different in vehicles today.

The older cars of the "60's...some "70's" had underside room and structure for easy mounting in a visible location,(tidy/handy/neat) is a better word/words for the installation. Prices vary higher also, but still......

My old 85 Corvette has a fuel mileage meter. It's possible to get over 60 miles per gallon going downhill!
