First off, I know the gauges are not necessarily accurate representations of how things are, but I was wondering, if anyone else's oil pressujre shows consistantly in the middle of the low and high while driving in their cruiser.

Thanks,

I think so. Isn't there a picture in the owner's manual, or a description of where the needle should sit?

I know for sure mine doesn't sit in the bottom half of the guage, but I would have to actually drive the thing to see exactly where it sits. I'll look next time I drive.

It fluctuates based on RPM, it should be at the 1/4 line at idle and will go up to the 3/4 line at about 3000 rpm, give or take a few hundred. I dont think the gauge is all that accurate, but the main thing is that it will give you an idea of whether or not the oil is actually flowing.
