I've been trying to find someone to make one of these for months now. I don't have the know-how for something like this, and I would want nothing more than one of these. YOu can use the scangauge for the obd2 cars, but there is nothing for EFI obd0 and obd1 cars.

There are enough of us out there that this would probably sell rather well, IMHO.

I just bought a standard

I just bought a standard vaccuum guage made by Autogauge and had it fitted in the side pillar. Helps to keep an eye on my gas pedal.

How much/where'd you get it? I would pick one up for cheap enough just to have it when I do a highway 100mi run to figure out mileage so I could see if it reads the same as the numbers I'd get from the tank.

Hm

That is the style of vacuum gauge gauge that seems to be disputed in accuracy, especially in our newer not carbbed models, but it would at least be a resonable estimate, I think. Easy enough to find online. For a 96+ car you can just use a scangauge and just get goooood accuracy.

You make a very good point. For this it would be MUCH easier to hook up a line of LEDs to the TPS Sensor and indicate voltage.

Okay, maybe not much easier, but definately much more cool :P

Line of leds

On the subject of lines of LEDs, I want to hook up a binary clock in my car. Just so you know.

i was just saying that it's

i was just saying that it's pointless unless you want a cool gauge in your car.
you can for sure tell how far your gas pedal is down.
