1976 Continental Low Fuel Economy Light

Dear Bill -

On my '76 Continental, I had a dealer installed accessory which amounted to nothing more than a vacuum switch which under a load would cause a light to come on the dashboard indicating "low fuel economy".

It was kind of a novelty.

I now own a '79 and was wondering if the part is available for that year. I can find no information on the internet, nor in the owner's manual.

Again, it was only a novelty, but kinda fun.




Hello Alan -

The accessory that you are seeking is rare probably due to the fact that it was not a great sales success. As you state it is merely a novelty vacuum sensor with a light to advise the driver that he was accelerating too aggressively and getting so called "low fuel economy". If we have such an item in our inventory we will advise you.
