Favorite OBD Scan Tool for Driving?

Not so much for the Fit, but I have a 2009 Ford E350 that I'd like to monitor - things like AvgMPG and InstantMPG. Scan Gauge? Ultragauge? OBD2 BT adapter and something like the Torque App? The latter seems to be the cheapest option, but I'd like to hear some reviews on what you use.

I have used both the ultragauge and Scangauge2

I loved the screen size of the UG, and the price point. The one thing I really disliked about it, is when you go to fuel .... the menu is cumbersome and ultimately led me to sell the thing

The SG2 is what I am using now in all of my cars, and I love it. I picked it up used on craigslist for a deal.

I did toy around with a plx kiwi obd scanner, but I hated that I had to give up usage of my phone (ie, cant use phone for gps + monitor mpg and stuff at the same time)

Thanks for the reply. I have an old 7" tablet that I can use if go with the OBD2 reader. That's my cheapest option at $20 for the reader and $5 for Torque Pro (app).
