It took you guys that long to notice that?

I noticed it when I first got the car THREE years ago. didn't say anything because I figured it was interchangable since it'* spelled that way too in the owner'* manual

Well, to answer the question, no it doesn't bother me.

I thought it was like "Check" and "Cheque"

Wiki-ed it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gauge

Quote:
"Gauge" vs. "Gage": Generally speaking, a "gauge" is measuring device that has a needle or other indicator, a "gage" does not, e.g. pin gages, feeler gages, check fixtures, etc.

According to The Columbia Guide to Standard American English, " ...Gage is a variant of gauge, but apparently in dwindling use..."
So a Gauge has a needle or indicator, A gage I guess would be like a digital device...like the AeroForce gage, or the little display screen that shows if a door is open or a lamp is out...

When that light comes on its telling you to look at the display screen? lol
