Instant Gas Mileage Display

In the instrument cluster, I can toggle between Average MPH, Date, Miles to Empty Tank, Average MPG. Is there a way to display Instant MPG?

Doh. Just saw the dedicated instantly gauge.

Yes Eco Pro mpg gained is nice.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I haven't seen a huge change like that, but I watched the number drop from 7.4 to 7.2. I just don't understand what that could even mean. Is it implying that ECO PRO is actually using more fuel than if it was turned off?

I just don't get how that number gets smaller. Isn't it a cumulative measure of all the gas savings you've accumulated using ECO PRO mode?

I've noticed it goes down if you're driving hard for a few miles, so maybe it's an indication of how much you've saved over 'average' driving style since reset.

Could be if u drive aggressive in eco mode it uses more gas to get up to aggressive driving than comfort mode. It's just not set up for higher speed driving so takes more gas to get it done initially?

No. it just means that you are not driving "eco pro" enough. I pretty much have eco pro down to a science now.

When you drive easy, it increases your range. When you accelerate to hard in eco pro its not that your losing mileage, its that your negting the gains you got by driving soft. Its amazing that you can drive soft for 90% of the tank of fuel and then drive hard and aggressive the last 10% and lose all your gains lol.

Also, traffic kills your efficiceny, and eco pro shows it.
