In researching what scanner to purchase I came across the low cost ELM327 OBD2 type scanner (about $12 on ebay) which works in concert with the Torque Pro software (about $5) that one runs on an Android phone or tablet.
I couldn't find anything very helpful on the forum to explain or show what I might expect to see if I scanned the ML with this, and as the cost was so low I purchased both to get myself started up the learning curve.
I must say, for the low cost, it is a very polished product - highly configurable, intuitive, fun, and of course educational. I know it has its limitations, but for a cost of less than $20 I am OK with this. When I know more I will spend more.
I have posted below four screenshots showing 24 gauges taken during a short 20 minute drive so note that the readings on one screen will not necessarily correspond with the readings on another screen (taken a few minutes later).
I'll explain a bit about what I know of each gauge (left to right, then down each screen shot) :
1. Vehicle speed in km/h
2. Engine speed in RPM
3. Throttle position in % open
4. Manifold vacuum in inches of Mercury
5. Fuel consumption - km/litre instantaneous
6. Engine load in %
1. Intake air temperature in degrees Celsius
2. Intake air pressure in pounds per square inch
3. Mass Air Flow in grams/second
4. Coolant temperature in degrees Celsius
5. Fuel flow in litres/hour
6. Fuel remaining in % of tank capacity
