Ford has announced that they have nailed down two patents that will help motorists maximize their fuel economy.  The two components will be used in the company’s new SmartGauge.

Ford Motor Company says it has landed two patents that will be used in the company’s new SmartGauge to help drivers monitor and maximize their fuel economy.

One patent is called EcoGuide.  That’s a display that shows motorists how they’re doing on gas and prompts them on ways to get even better mileage.  The other one covers something called the power threshold gauge which also assists drivers in getting better gas mileage.  Ford is calling the entire package the SmartGauge with EcoGuide.

Initially the new gizmo will be offered on Ford hybrid vehicles.

Ford offers a total of 12 vehicles including cars, utilities and crossovers in the U.S. that lead their field in fuel economy.  Ford also offers four vehicles that get 40mph or better in city driving.
