how much are you cranking and are you keeping the throttle plate open?
I believe the gauge is reliable. I will use it on our 2012 CRV which should have almost perfect psi and see what it reads sometime.
The one thing we forgot to do was check it at WOT. It was all done with no throttle. But it wouldn't lower it 80+ psi.
When we get it back together if it's still this low I'll be getting rid of it.
