What do the various gauges on the dash do?
The gauges on your car’s dash provide you with essential information you’ll need while driving. Here’s a quick rundown:
Speedometer: Tells you how fast you’re traveling
Tachometer: Tells you how fast the engine is turning (revolutions per minute, or RPM)
Fuel Gauge: Tells you the level of gas in the tank
Instant Fuel Economy Gauge: Shows you your car’s fuel economy in the form of a bar graph (not all Civics are equipped with this)
