Re: mpg!

Mine actually usually reads LOW hehehehe... At least almost always, I've caught it being optimistic a time or two, but it's always hand calculated anyway. Just seems funny that mine seems to act different from almost everyone else I've talked to !

Re: mpg!

If you have an android, FuelLog is a good app for manually calculating mpg. Its great for tracking expenses too
