Average Fuel Economy on the Message Center

Yesterday while driving I notices the Average Fuel Economy number on the Message Center just started ticking off continually until it hit 20.0 then it started going the other way until it reached 32. I drove about 70 miles (roundtrip). It should not have such a drastic drop and rapid rise. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions???

What does Ava fuel mean on a xf super charged jaguar 2009 inside the dash


I'm gonna go with Average Fuel Economy. In a supercharged Jag you can bet that number will never be too good. How did you manage to get enough money to afford this car if you can't guess what that means?

2005 Suzuki swift. The fuel economy display is fluctuating random numbers. May go from 10lt per 100 km to 36lt to 22lt to 45lt to 50lt.. Etc all random. I had a battery cell fail and lost stereo codes...


Has the display been changed from "average" to "current" reading ?

The current reading can change widely second to second depending on how your driving.

To change read out modes, press the button next to the read-out.

Hey, was wondering what the message center display symbols and what they mean, lost my manual


There are five trip computer displays which may be stepped through by pushing the MODE button. The information will appear in the following order:

D AVG ECON (Average Fuel Economy): This shows the average fuel economy since the last reset.

D INST ECON (Instantaneous Fuel Economy): This shows fuel economy for the most recent second of driving.

D RANGE (Trip Range): This shows the estimated distance that can be traveled with the remaining fuel. The fuel economy used to calculate range is based on the last few hours of driving. When in a low fuel condition, LO is displayed.

D FUEL USED (Trip Fuel Used): This shows the accumulated fuel used since the last reset.

D AVG SPEED (Average Speed): This shows the average speed since the last reset.

Fuel Economy Drop On My 2006 Ford Taurus SE Average is 16.7 MPG


It might be service time...
How old are your filters and spark plugs?
What about spark plug leads?

If a plug isn't firing properly than that means the other cylinders have to burn extra fuel to keep up with the demands from your right foot.
Which will result in far more fuel being burnt because that miss firing cylinder is having to be dragged...

That is just one possibility tho... You haven't over heated it or anything like that have you?
You haven't run it out of oil for a short time and then suddenly noticed???

Keep us posted on the progress

Resetting average fuel economy


You only need to have the SID display the information (average fuel usage) and presse the CLEAR button for a few seconds (hold it) and it will reset to 0. When you start driving it will start avereging again. Any settins displayed with a stricked 0 can mean average and can be reset that way.
