    Fuel Economy Report

    Not sure if this is the right place, but I'm excited! Just got my Mirage on Saturday, and yesterday discovered it had the mpg readout by the odometer. I started this morning on my 25 mile commute and it is through mostly suburban areas with a little highway. My average was 50 mpg for the trip!

    Congrats!

    You may also be interested to know the car has TWO MPG gauges, "A" and "B", but most people only know about the "A" gauge.

    The "A" gauge automatically resets after a certain amount of time parked, but the "B" gauge is manually reset, so it's useful for tracking your mileage over full tanks.

    Check your owners manual, or see this thread:

    That sounds about right. Keep a reasonable speed and you could improve on those numbers.

    Hard to maintain any speed with traffic, stop lights and stop signs! I just tired to manage or anticipate things as best I could to conserve momentum.

    That's critical. Proactive vs. reactive driving saves a LOT of fuel.

    Only a fool rushes in.

    oooo I've been meaning to ask about this

    Is there a way to get the B read out to be permanent? In the winter I certainly prefer looking at that than the A read out hahaha

    No, that's the dumb thing about it. When you switch the car off, it always reverts to showing the "A" gauge next time.

    Although, once you do the required number of clicks enough times to view the "B" gauge, it becomes muscle memory and you can do it quickly, without looking.

    I have never seen my "B" mpg. I don't think I could get it to work at the time. Either that or it was operator error.

    That means your B gauge has never been reset? Then it's your "lifetime" MPG, according to the computer.
