Exclamation Miles Per Gallon ("MPG") Gauge Displays Inconsistent Readings

I'm not sure if this is a normal reading, but I just noticed recently that my MPG displays inconsistently.

For example, when I'm driving off the highway and I release the accelerator and apply the breaks, simultaneously the MPG sweeps back from 40, 40+ to 15, then returns to 40, 40+ within seconds.

Similarly, this occurs immediately after an aggressive acceleration cycle followed by a lack of acceleration with or without breaking to a complete stop.

Is this a normal process or is there some underlying issue?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.
