There must not be a patent on that device as I have one lisenced under a different name and also has the question "Are we in a hurry?" spoken in a rather sarcastic and snide tone.

Different strokes for different folks!

I never learned from a man who agreed with me.

General info...... The fuel economy sticker on new vehicles is less than it has been in the past (ie more accurate) because of the change in standards thus reflecting more of the actual economy.

General Disarray, in case noone has answered your question about vacuum gauges on diesel engines, the answer is no. Today's diesels do not have a manifold that develops a vacuum like, for instance, carburetor-equipped gasoline engines.

On diesels, which generally today are fuel-injected and turbocharged, two gauges are good for indicating how hard the engine is working: an exhaust gas temperature gauge, and a pressure gauge on the turbocharger output. With these gauges, generally the lower the exhaust gas temperature and the lower the output pressure of the turbocharger is, the less work the engine is doing and thus the less fuel consumed.
