Default HELP! I cant read my gauges! Please!

Ok... so I got some Blitz BL series gauges. They look really great...one problem though.. they are in metric. Does someone have a conversion chart from Metric BAR to psi, and the same for my Fuel pressure. Thanks...Also when I turn my car off the fuel pressure gauge stays at 2 bar and doesnt fall for like 4 hours... is this how it should be? Thanks!

2 bar is about 30psi, sounds right. It won't drop right away because the FPR is closed blocking fuel. The fuel eventually works it's way back to the gas tank, but very slowly.

It's not too bad if you remember the approximate values for atmospheric in a few units:

1 Atm=
100 Kpa
0.1 Mpa
30 in Hg
15 psia
760 torr (equal to 760 mm Hg)

My Autometer guage is psi on the positive side, but in Hg on the negative side, but then I just divide that by two and you get psi anyway. Not so bad.
