Yes the volt works, expecially with a system you can tell it works. The MPG guage works but since it is a analog guage and not a digital guage it doesnt give me the average mpg like most cars...its a guage so when you go it goes down...when you stop it goes up...its somewhat accurate (the trip meter works for me) and the torque guage seems accurate with the specs given for a stock tib. So the answer...yes they seem pretty accurate.

So the answer...yes they seem pretty accurate.
I would assume then that a non-stock tib would throw the torque guage and quite possibly the MPG guage out because it is most probably run off the readings of the tach. Modifying the Tib with an SC or Turbo, or even a new intake, header or exhaust, would be enough the throw the readings out. -Is there anyone that could confirm this?

They may collect readings from the o2 sensors, but even then would be thrown out with any mods done to the car, I would think. Especially if you have o2 sims or an after market exhaust setup.

the torque one seems to work like a vaccum gauge, when you shift it drops then back up again, at least thats what it reminds me of, the volt definatley works and is for the most part accurace, the mpg i cant really tell though cause i never pay attention to gas mileage
