LOL when i take my moms 9-3 vert out i usually drive it hard and only get around 22 MPG, so i reset it a few miles before home and drive easy so it goes back up to 30 so she wont get pissy :lol:BrettK said:Plus it is an average over the milage on the car, or when it was reset the last time. I had 27.2 mpg, and my daughter used my car for 2 weeks, it came back at 21.9, so now I'm working on getting it back up to 27.
Mine takes an average until i manually clear it. After a few hundred miles the average starts to change really slowly. I figure its designed to be reset manually every time you fill with gas so you can see your average per tank.sleepy3863 said:from what i have noticed, if you reset the gauge, and you drive for a mile or two, then stop at a light, the average will start to go down... the average is from the time the car is started, until it is shut off... it gives you the average of the running time of the car, not just the driven mileage...
No, they lie!:cheesy:Aaron Gilbert said:Well technically, I would say it's inaccurate. Lie would imply that the computer knows the truth and chooses to report a different figure.
aye the bigger the injectors you fit the more they lie, but what is it with that daft wee no., you can,t help but get transfixed by it & you damn near go out and buy a pint to celebrate when it goes up by 0.1mpgAndyaero said:No, they lie!:cheesy:
Mine never shows less than 55mpg on day to day driving, all the under bonnet tweakery may have confused it and it's trying to please me. On the track tho it soon shows it's displeasure and drops to around 10mpg. They're alive you know.
