I probably misread this. But some loosely similar fooling, e.g. by
creating a variable with mean 0 and inserting it between the other two
variables, is in the same spirit.

Yes, there is. 

We can't see your data, but your problem appears to be on all fours with

graph bar (mean) a b c d, over(cat) 

where cat = 1,2,3,4. 

Now -generate- an extra variable. 

gen dummy = cat > 2 

and add an extra option 

... over(dummy)

Now edit the graph to remove all traces of the second option, except the
bigger space. 

(If you are using Stata 10, -update- to Stata 10.1. It's free.) 



I'm using STATA 10 to generate the following bar graph:

 graph bar (mean) pred_f2002 pred_f2005 pred_c2002 pred_c2005,

Is there a way to put a bigger gap between the second and the third
bar (relative to the gap between the 1st and 2nd, and 3rd and 4th
