Just got back from the local MB dealer, and saw 5 cars with economy guages (4 were 190's and 1 was a 124 body) and all of them were in the red. I asked the service manager what the deal was and he looked like I asked him to derive Schroedinger's equation. So, by observation they are all in the red at rest with the engine off. If there is a reason to make the guage read differently at rest, please enlighten me. Jim
