    Yes, flick through and you can find your average mpg, the screen you describe is your current mpg and changes every few meters if i remeber, or something like that. Tells you it all in the handbook.

    When your next driving along sit at 50 or what ever speed then just lift your foot completely off the accelerator an you'll see ----. Just means your not doing any MPG.:icon_thumright:
