Gearchange and consumption gauge - operation
Body electrical systems / Gearchange and consumption gauge - operation


1 When fitted, the gearchange and consumption gauge is fitted in the instrument panel in place of the coolant temperature gauge.

2 The gearchange indicator lights up in all gears except top gear when better economy without loss of power can be obtained by changing up to a higher gear. The indicator does not operate during acceleration or deceleration, or on carburettor engines when the engine is cold.

3 The gearchange indicator light goes out when a higher gear is engaged .

4 On automatic transmission models, the gearchange indicator is non-operational since all forward gears are automatically changed in accordance with engine speed/output and vehicle speed.

5 The fuel consumption indicator operates only in top gear (D in automatic transmission models) and indicates the actual fuel consumption in mpg.

6 The gearchange and consumption gauge is operated by a switch on the gearbox and a sender in the vacuum line to the distributor (see illustration).
