If it makes you feel better, you can stuff a TDI in there. Mine's
always (at least when running right) dead center on the gauge. It's
almost creepy after years of driving A1s and A2s; I'd gotten to expect
to see the gauge drift around.

Or, on some TDI pumps, plastic impeller. Not such a good idea :(
