Looks a bit optimistic for a 3.7, that's 35 - 36 UK mpg, (better than my old S1 3.0) I wonder if your speedo calibration also effects this ? I'm usually reading 26.2 - 27.8 on dash data US, so only 31 - 33 mpg UK

FWIW that concurs closely with mine Jon. I have seen slightly over 30 displayed on a freshly reset counter whilst on busy road at a steady 50mph in sixth though.

Now it is running at roughly 29 mpg on the display & just under 29 using mileage & fuel added . A one off check of distance from google vs the odo shows c 4% under reading. Can't say I am bothered about that.
The speedo error & the crap fuel gauge is more annoying.

I have the same issue with the fuel gauge John, it never goes above a 3/4 reading and it runs low way earlier than is accurate. I am yet to fill up and put 30L or more in the tank.

I am currently trying to rely on resetting the trip counter when I refuel but still not brave enough to run for too long as the dial drops.

It is an annoyance but with all of the other madness in the world, I'm learning to live with it.

I've found the digital data via the info button reliable, so much so that I've driven confidently without range anxiety and got 43 lts in, the 3.7 is THE most accurate Mog I've owned for fuel data

Thanks Jon,

I had not noticed the info button gave any data on the fuel except for the 1 time I let the warning light come on and there was a range indicator of remaining miles. I think I fueled up with less than 50 miles remaining, I managed to get about 27 liters in the tank!

I'll flick through the readings again at the weekend.

Cheers

Steve

Steve, each time you dab the INFO button it will scroll tho the following

Trip A (I use this as my daily log of miles)
Trip B (I reset when refueled)
Miles to empty (counts down & triggers the 50 mile warning light)
Average MPG (note in US galls), since last reset
MPG bar graph
Timer
and finally a blank screen

after you start the car, whatever you've scrolled too will stay as your display (which you can change en-route)

Thank you Jon, really appreciate the detail here.

It is the 3rd option I had not spotted (Miles to empty), will set this as my 'home screen'.
