By defect, Megasquirt lacks VSS and is physically unable to detect which gear is engaged, so the only way would be a virtual gauge for each gear (five or six total). As above but doing calculations and adding code for every gear.

The result would be something like this:

You'd have to watch the gauge corresponding with the gear engaged at every moment. V.g. when in 3rd gear only the 'USMPG in 3rd gear' gauge would be true, the other four would lie.
