Distance to empty or current gas mileage gauge / readout
I didnt you could get that distance to empty as a guage....got to check into that....thanks
Some BMW's have an analog gas mileage gauge, and a lot of newer cars have a digital distance to empty/mpg readout. I really like seeing average MPG for a trip- it encourages good driving habits as far as coasting, accelerating slowly, etc.

Should have got an SE.

I do exactly what you said...I'm always in the Avg MPG mode on the computer...almost drive you nuts.

The aircraft supply places might have some that should be adaptable. Check chiefaircraft.com.

A friend had his gauges yanked from his FJ a couple months back.

The replacement cost was ~$330 as I recall. He searched all over for them; they are difficult to find on the open market.

Here's from a quick search (part number 83290-35081):

thanks for the link but even at $330 its alot...I was thinking of going the aviation route...looking for a pitch gyro and a horizon gyro...to put in my guages....at least it would be unique and different.

does anyone know of a place where I could find airplane parts....cheap
thanks
