I just bought a cheap bluetooth OBDII reader a couple weeks ago ($24) and installed the Torque app on my smartphone. It is incredible and probably the coolest app that I have ever put on my phone. Besides various mpg displays, it can read and interpret every piece of data that the OBDII provides in real time. It can also read and reset OBDII error codes.

I can't find a current list of all the sensors it can read (If your vehicle has the physical sensors of course), but the following list gives you an idea. You can display each one of them as dials, graphs or displays and choose how and where to display them on the screen, and even choose different background images and display styles. There are also a bunch of plug-ins with pre-formatted displays like a Racing Meter, Shift Lights, etc., as well as vehicle specific plug-ins.
