The Mirage comes with a factory "Multi Information Display" in the instrument cluster which includes numeric fuel consumption display (separage resettable "A" and "B" gauges), plus a "range to empty" calculation:
Alpha_One described the features of the fuel consumption display in his Mirage (Philippine model) introduction thread:
- The MID shows trip average fuel consumption in L/100km (default), km/L, or MPG.
- It's resettable on the fly.
- The "A" fuel consumption gauge auto resets after the engine has been off for 4 hours. This gauge is shown by default every time the car is powered up. It's also manually resettable.
- The "B" gauge is also manually resettable, and stores your cumulative fuel consumption until it is reset again.
- To view the "B" gauge, see instructions in post #37, this thread.
Unfortunately, there's no "instant" fuel economy display in the MID of the 1.2L cars - something that could help fine tune accelerator pedal pressure in real time to save fuel.
But the Japanese market, higher-efficiency 1.0L Mirage comes with a graphical "instant" display. It's possible this may show up on the higher-efficiency 1.0L cars in other markets, eg. U.K. & Europe.
In Japan, it's called Eco Drive Assist:
It's better than nothing. A graphical display has both advantages & disadvantages over a numeric instant display. Faster mental processing is one advantage of a graphic (so, arguably it's safer), but compared to a numeric display, it lacks good information resolution.To ensure good fuel efficiency while being driven, the Mirage employs Eco Drive Assist [on the "G" and "M" trim levels], which has a three-level meter to make it easy for drivers to monitor fuel efficiency levels while they are driving. The "E" trim Mirage uses an ECO lamp to indicate eco-friendly driving.
