My Tacho gauge story goes as follows:

Speaking of whacky gauges, my RPM gauge is having trauma.

I'll be on the freeway doing 70-75, and the gauge will drop about 400 
RPM from say 3000 to 2600.  It will stay proportionately lower until 
the engine again returns to idle, where the needle is back where it 
should be.

Are there any self-proclaimed RPM Rx's on the list?
