Is there anyway to get real numbers for stuff like fuel in the tank, charge in the battery, air in the tires. I was able to display that information with the old Cadillac I used to have. I am guessing a Scangauge is probably the only option as the displays don't seem to have many options.

Charge in the battery look at the % screen in MFT.

 

Fuel in the tank look at the gage or look at the display in the ET screen (power up the car and hold the OK button on left until ET is on left Window.

 

Air in tires no just a light when pressure drops to 26psi is all that the Cmax will do.  You can use scangage to get more info.

I like using my ScanGaugeII to monitor SOC, WT, TFT and RPM's and it sits on top of the dash with VELCO strips. :smile2:  My main interest is SOC and WT.

The ScanGauge can monitor each individual tire PSI. Any one can set up a text message to report low tire pressure. This actually worked for me when I had a slow leak after picking up a nail. The message gave a nice warning that the tire was going down.

 

The scanGauge can be programmed to look at meany parameters. I have over 20 different parameters programmed in. Only 4 can be displayed at any one time so  as my interest varies  I looks at different parameters.

Sounds like a scangauge is a must get. I actually had an mpg meter before OBD was around. You had to strap magnets to the driveshaft, or make a holder for the magnets on the front axle for front wheel drive, like I did. Also splice a flow meter into the fuel line. That was around 1982 on my '74 Renault R17. 10HvR.jpg

Another option to get to the real data is an OBD2 Bluetooth or WiFi dongle and Torque Pro on an Android.

 

I picked up a 7" Acer tablet real cheap and it wedges in nicely over the top of the MFT display for times when I want to keep track of other data.
