    That is what a fuel pressure gauge does

    The question was "why?". As in "why" would you add it? You want a big dial that reads between 49-50psi? IMO, it's not anything useful, unless there is a current issue you are trying to diagnose? At that time, you'd hook one up, check it, and then remove it. Heck, XB's have a notoriously crappy voltage regulator, are very hard on batteries, and don't even have a voltmeter

    Maybe you meant to post 'look at this hole I tapped'? In that case... cool bro.

    Same could be said for all gauges. I have a tach but while riding it rarely do I look at it. I feel most people ride by sound and feel. If you want a fuel pressure gauge I say go for it.

    To quote Boss Kettering:

    "Parts left out cost nothing, require no maintenance, and do not fail."

    this one also is a Kettering quote, but I'm pretty sure Cooter has paraphrased this on the forum.

    "A problem well stated is a problem half solved."
