No not really. I purchased a "Demo" with 1600 miles on it. When I first got the car, the DTE would read around 420 at the gas station, prior to any driving.doumat said:Silver Shadow,
Could it be for your first tank full(s), you were breaking in the car, driving less agressively, getting more mpg? That would give you more DTE.
I'm getting about 410, with a K & N drop-in air filter (and resetting the computer) - but I also drive mainly in the city and with the AC on, plus I like to stomp on the accelerator at freeway onramps. I'm sure I could squeeze it to about 430 with more "responsible" driving.bruncek said:Yea i noticed that after i filled it up one day and reset the MPG and other trip odometers my DTE was like 279? Rediculous! Whats up with that? When i originally filled i, it gave me like 500+ but since then. I will be filling it tomorrow.. stay tuned.
I noticed this also... It doesn't seem to matter if I drive conservative or aggressive... same MPG readout.Black Dragon said:

-I don't know, but it seems the faster I drive on the freeway, the more fuel efficient the car becomes. Go figure.
You may be right there WW, since mine differs everytime I fill up.wild willy said:I think it is based on your milage on your previous tank of gas. Mine was alway right around 400. Then I took it on the highway and averaged damn near 29mpg.......and at fill up it read 523 for the first time
iflyvfr said:you can't reset the DTE readout using the button. Yesterday, after driving 100% freeway miles we gassed up and I was surprised to see DTE set at 520 after the fillup. Before, it was alway about 100 miles less than that after a fillup. Well, the computer must base it's DTE guess on your most recent MPG, or last fillup...we almost never drive 100% freeway miles and that's what made the change at the last fillup
