It's really up to you whether you reset it or not.

If you don't, the computer will continue to 'average' the fuel consumption from the last reset, so changes will reduce as the impact of a 'low' or 'high' figure gets absorbed by the values of the other numbers already stored.

Personally speaking, I would reset it, as I'd view it as more relevant for 'range to empty' calculations, plus it's a useful barometer as to the general health of the car. (You thought there was something 'wrong' with your car, because of the average it was showing...).

There is also a bit of a challenge trying to achieve better mpg than the last time.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
