I just switch it to "US" to check the MPG and change it back to "Metric" because we know Celcius. As far as I know there is no "reset". The computer just continously monitors the mileage. I'll check for a reset function tomorrow before work.

Winnipeg is a small city and I don't drive more than 15 minutes to most places. 20 minutes tops.

We bought a 2001 Madza Protege that had 17,000 KM on it. We bought it in 2002 and owned the car until 2008. We traded it with 73,000 KM on it. We put just over 10,000 KM on that car per year. Which is not very much.

To reset the mpg just hold the button in while MPG is in the displayed.

Are you letting it warm up before you start driving?

Never reset but I will tomorrow.

I'm not letting it warm up because I park underground in my apartment complex and park indoors when I go to work.

16 MPG in US gal is 19.2 MPG in imperial units. In Canada we used imperial units before we switched to metric. I suspect that part of the confusion is between the US and Imperial measures. EVIC uses US gallons in displaying mileage.

I use litres per 100 kms and I have that factor set in scanguage. Since we buy gas in litres and since our speedometers are in KMS it should be easier to calculate L/100kms. In winter with my cvt patriot I usually get around 11 litres per 100 kms. That is 21.4 MPG US and 25.7 MPG Imperial. My suggestion is that one tank is not enough to base any conclusion on and that a careful calculation of the next two or three tanks in L/100km will see a more reliable record of fuel consumption

Thanks. That makes sense.

I called the service department today and told them my gas milage reading. They said with the newer cars there isn't much they can adjust but to give the vehicle around 5,000 km to adjust i.e break in period. They said they could scan the engine at some point.

Regardless I do the same amount of driving as I did with my old Protege and I'm not filling up any more or less.

i had one of these as a rental and got 17 MPG mainly because i had to floor it to get moving. the power band is so high that when you get into it, you eat up gas

I got the same results.... what is rated on our sticker window in Canada is nowhere what we get. We are suppose to get 9.8l/100km city and 8.5l/100km highway... what we are expericing 12.5l/100km city and 10l/100km highway. But like I noticed... the lower the rpm the better the gas compsumtion. This beast does drink at higher rpm.

The good news is that I was getting 16.1 mpg and I checked today and I'm now getting 16.5. Maybe it will go slightly higher as the engine breaks in.

I was surprised to see that I'm getting 18.6 M.P.G. hopefully it goes up a bit more as the engine breaks in.
