I don't know if its good or bad for it being so low TJ. I'll just say I'm getting 21 to 22 so far with less than 500 miles on it. 60% highway

Are you using the AVG MPG in the DIC or based on your own calculations. My first 200 miles the DIC was reading 16.5 MPG, so I reset it and since then its been between 20-22 MPG.

Good point! Dennis, sometimes you have to play with your DIC to be happy...

Maybe Megan Fox or Isabel Lucas could reset your DIC for you.

BTW, I did reset my avg fuel soon after I picked it up. Come to think of it, I think it might have been low as well and I thought I'd reset to see if it changed. Give that a shot definitely.

I won't know for sure what mine is until my next fill up. I will calculate it then.

Don't let your DIC miss-lead you.

Sorry couldn't resist.

Keep in mind that the average economy feature also takes into account your idle time, so if you're sitting in your car a lot playing with things, or showing it off, you are getting 0.00 mpg (or l/km or however you northerners rate yours...). Try resetting it after the "new" wares off and you spend most of your time actually driving.

Nobody knows TJ91's DIC better than he does. He's had plenty of time to play with it. Megan or Isabel would have no idea what to do with his DIC.

Maybe not, but they'd look damn good doing it!

She would say it was too big of a screen.
But on a serious note, ive resetted the drivers information center about 10 times now, and fuel economy is either the same, or worse. No idle time either. Believe me, i am using all the gas saving procedures you can do. The car is still only getting worse
