So....I have gone through 4 tanks of gas and my average MPG display didnt reset. I thought this happened automatically. Am I doing something wrong???:confused:

Did you reset the trip meter? You need to do that.

Trip meters do not reset automatically. They have no way of "knowing" the limits you want to set.

FWIW I reset trip 2 when I fill my tank and, in normal day to day stuff, reset trip 1 when I leave the house. On trips I'll generally reset trip 1 at the beginning of each day. (On my VW GTI I also reset trip 2 when I fill my tank. Trip 1 resets automatically when the car sits for two hours or more.)

How about that. I never heard of an auto reset trip meter before. I reset trip 1 when I get fuel and trip 2 when I change oil.

It's been around for a long time.. I first saw it on a VW Scirocco back in 1983 or thereabouts and all my VW's since have had it. It is still in use and can also be found on Porsche's.
