    You have achieved maximum economy?

    or the vacuum pipe that runs this gauge is either blocked or broken, trace back through firewall to take off point and inspect, clean or replace.

    Most likely a hole in the diaphragm in the control unit which is located on the inner guard on the passenger side near the heate fan box.
