Well i got my vacuum gauge installed. I noticed that it doesn't go to zero when i turn off the car. Do i have a faulty gauge or what?

howdy fellow fiero owner. ive got one hell of a setup to try and get some FE out of, but it is a pretty efficient motor i used in my motorswap. are you a member of PFF?

a headsup, its not carb'd. thats the TBI (throttle body injectrion) system all the iron dukes in fieros have. you could aways get a MPGuino for your car like i have for mine. but if your wanting to do it the cheapest way possible, the vac. gauge would be your best bet.

45 mpg?? holy hell, thats pretty good. the epa is like 38 on that year of duke for the highway. have fun, and take good care of that car. dont junk it, restore it!

EDIT: ah yes, i have been found! (my MPGuino post on PFF) you can find a lot of info from the fiero forum.

yea sorry about that, i messed up. I actually got 37mpg last summer. Yes i am a member of pennocks, i am Duke_on_fire on there. The fiero i have does have a tbi(throttle body injection) unit in it, its not carburated.

Anyone have any suggestions about my vacuum gauge? It wont go to zero, its probably broken?
