    scangauge cheaper alternatives?

    Does anyone know of any alternative devices which plug into the diag port in your car so it tells you your MPG and distance before you run out of fuel, including any other information like air intake temp and stuff.
    I know Scangauge is one but at £100 odd its a bit much because all i want it for is to view my mpg...
