MPG readings in center console and drivers display different?

Post by JenMo » Fri Jun 07, 2019 5:07 pm

MPG in center console and drivers screen are not the same.

Drivers display showing 28.9
Center Console showing 27.8

Anyone know why this should be ?

My eight week old T3 is the same . I understand that it will resolve with a reset, but have yet to try. The variance has been constant form day one.

Check the settings on the driver display it’s possible your looking at Total mileage vs trip mileage or trip average.

I’ve got three different read outs. The digital display is different from the driving stats app, which is different from the on call app. None of them match. None have been reset since getting the car. I’ve done a about 12k so far.

I’ve reset all three since I bought the car (or at least two; one resets itself) and all three are still different. Resets make no difference and I too have been wondering why the discrepancy. I reset the one in the infotainment panel and the one TM and by the end if my 14 mile journey they were different . Go figure
