    Mirage mileage readout A and B?

    So I know there is a way to see another readout, the B? One. Is that like a lifetime avg? How do I get to it? Just hold down the button?

    I suppose I could read the manual but it always slips my mind. It's fresh in my mind now haha.

    Thanks!

    go to your estimated miles/km left screen, hold down the button until it reads B, and then go to the next screen to see the unreset lifetime average.

    Everyone thinks its silly and needlessly complicated.

    The 'A' readout resets by itself after four hours of sitting. I use this to calculate my daily mpg.

    The 'B' readout must be manually reset. I use this to calculate my tank mpg when I fill up.

    As has been said, you can toggle between them by pushing and holding the reset button while in the Distance To Empty screen on the MID (look for the long arrow on that screen). You will see the "A" at the top of the screen go out and "B" will light up. Push again and you will see it displayed. To get back to the 'A' readout you have to toggle all the way back through to the DTE screen and push/hold the button again.

    I do the same. I've also kept track of the difference between the calculated fuel economy reading and my actual fuel economy. Depending on my driving the Mirage fuel economy display can have an error of about 1 - 4 mpg over actual usage. I've noticed larger error if I do more coasting on that tank of gas.

    I have noticed the same thing. I tend to coast more in the summer when the weather is nice and the roads are clear. The difference between calculated mpg (math) and estimated mpg (MID) widens a bit during the summer months.

    I'm going to have to check out this b gauge...

    I found the factory gauge quite accurate. It was almost always right on. I coast a fair amount. How we're you guys measuring your "actual usage"? Were you filling up at the same pump every time @ just let it click off?

    I let it click off. I read somewhere here topping off was bad for the emissions stuff.

    OK...that worked great. Don't know why I had trouble trying to find it before.

    My car has 21,000 miles and I have never seen/reset my car's lifetime average. Looks like it's pretty accurate in my case:

    51.4 mpg = Calculated lifetime average
    51.8 mpg = Computer lifetime "B" average
