Since the oil pressure gauge is the most important one in the
car, I check mine every 5-10 seconds. I've been doing that
religiously since I bought my first car, a 1968 MGB, in 1977.
I even check the oil pressure in my Evil Dolphin Choking SUV,
and it starts dinging its little synthesized chime if any
gauges drop below the safe level. Like wearing a seatbelt, if
you *force* yourself to check the oil pressure frequently for
a week, it soon becomes an unbreakble habit, Good luck with
