Sorry to those who don't use mpg. I see there is readership in other countries.

Today, my SID showed 56.8 mpg! Too bad I didn't take a photo.

To be honest, it happened after filling up and resetting the SID. I then drove down a long steep hill. Pulling out of the filling station, it showed 9.4 mpg but then kept increasing. When I started driving on flat ground it sank back to 40.1 mpg when my trip ended.

Just a note, this happens to be a UK based forum, we Yanks are the guests and one of the "Other Countries".

55 MPG (us measurement) doing about 75 on highway drafting behind a truck. Was running behind him for about 1/2 hour and and that is where it stablized at.

Fishzine is noting that his SID is set to reflect measurements based on the US gallon.

It is always useful to verify that your SID is programmed correctly and to report the standard you are using. The UK gallon is about 20% larger than the US gallon!

Other way round...:cool:

Uk gallon 1 /Us gallon 1.20..:)
You answered your own (sort of) question.

1 imperial gallon = 1.200 949 926 gallon [US, liquid]
OR
1 gallon [US, liquid] = 0.832 674 185 imperial gallon

Either way the imp. gallon is larger.

A contest then as in the initial thread!!

Alrighty then!! A contest.

Fill your tanks, reset your SID, track consumption for four weeks. Take a pic of mileage in MPG and km/liter. The best mileage wins our undying gratitude and envy!! Start December 1st!! This way, we get average mileage, everyone travels during the holiday so can mix hwy vs. city. If we also report miles and km driven, we can also know how many miles make up the sample. Also report the type of driving that you do? I believe our SID's will report the alternate unit by simply switching to English vs. metric so its easy to report both.

Any takers????? :p

No lie, 438.x

I don't remember the decimal value. I just filled up in Orrville, OH where I work and reset the trip computer going down a hill outside of town. I flashed 438.x and then rapidy declined.

Pretty cool even if it was a glitch!

My first Saab was a '99 9-5SE. You have something bad happening. I used to get about 19-20 in town and 26-28 on the highway.

The issue could be driving style. Are you putting your foot into it constantly???? This could create your plight too.

SID varies

I've actually had a reading of 60.3 mpg for a few minutes that quickly changed to 40.1 mpg and stayed constant at 33.5 for 10 mins. at 70 mph. Don't know about the MY 08s, but my MY 07 SC gets great mileage (especially for the size and weight of the vehicle).

Not really a glitch. I can roll down the side of a mountain in neutral at about 90mph and reset the SID and it will read crazy numbers until I put it back in gear.
