Air/Fuel Ratio Gauge

This is a good gadget to have on your ride, why?

" If the fuel mixture becomes too lean, the engine may fail to ignite, causing misfire and a large increase in unburned hydrocarbon (HC) emissions. Lean mixtures burn hotter and may cause rough idle, hard starting and stalling, and can even damage the catalytic converter, or burn valves in the engine. The risk of spark knock/engine knocking (detonation) is also increased when the engine is under load. "

long story short.. to avoid a blown engine
