My Stewart-Warner Vacuum Gauge

I just wanted to show off my latest addition to the quest for mpg...

This gauge was donated by my dad, who has had this gauge in many cars, trucks, & motorhomes spanning 35+ years. This is what you would call a quality gauge. I made a cover out of a black cap off an aerosol can and used a strip of velcro to secure it to the dash cover. The vacuum hose is actually routed under the dash pad, not on top of it like the picture shows. I ran the hose down the side and under the dash to the passenger's side, exiting out an existing plastic grommet in the fire wall. I did tap into the brake booster hose, but did so in the location directly off the intake manifold.

Here's a couple pics:
