Hmm, mine has been doing that more frequently as well. That's one of the signs the TC is crapping the bed?
I will once mine craps the bed.
I do probably about 3-5k miles worth of towing and think its finally starting to wear on my converter.
FWIW, I just posted some pics of my thermostat I replaced this past weekend here:
I do about 90% stop/go driving in wonderful DC traffic. I'd guess average speed is less than MPH. This is ~35miles round trip each day Mon-Fri.
My EVIC is ~3mpg off at the end of a tank's life.

(Click on the picture for the full-size version of course)

If you go to a dealer, the TSB should be applied for free. After the TSB, the gauge will read as it does in the first picture.

If I have the TSB done will that over ride the ECM and require a reflash by you?
What about in 'normal' driving? From what I think I know, I've heard some diesel tunes to minimize turbo lag will have ~2lbs of boost at idle. I 'see' 3-5lbs at idle/creeping conditions. I lean towards the gauge being bad or off. Can you provide any additional input?
How much boost should we be seeing?
I finally got my boost gauge hooked up and in the little bit of driving it seems as if 1/2nd gears its around 17 and 3rd it'll hit 20/21.
Is that about right?
I that I read a few years back that stock (pre-F37) they were pushing upwords of 26lbs?
