Which is done intentionally.  Imagine how many complaints there would be
if the display bounced around :-)

  It's also not clear if the gauge rounds or truncates, which means that
a stabilized value has the potential of being at most just under a tenth
of a bar off.  I guarantee the ECU's value(which is what the display
ultimately uses) is neither slow, truncated, or inaccurate :-)
