    Is the fuel comp on the old td6.... mine says 22 to a gal no matter how a drive :rolleyes: it never moves. I've reset or many times but it's a waste of time. Other than doing a brim to brim there's no way of knowing.

    Does it stay at 22 as soon as you reset it or does it settle there after a few miles?

    Are you resetting the right trip consumption?
    I have Trip 1 & 2 but I only reset Trip 1. Mine's a 2005.

    I’d be happy with 22mpg if you don’t want it, mine won’t go higher than 14 mpg on a good day:(

    I’m running petrol through a 4.2 at sub 20mph for the most part. I can get a reading of 26mpg down hill and wind behind but I have to change the screen or look away as soon as the road levels off :confused:.
    Tricky :)

    What's the problem with doing a 'brim to brim' ?
    The old methods are the best, instead of relying on all this digital crap.
    nb. I brim both the Classic & our daily drive every time they need fuel. If there's another imaginary fuel 'shortage' (like last October) we have enough petrol until the panic is over :rolleyes:

    Do brim to brim and compare to trip. If it’s same its correct.
    If not, you can only trust one or other ; your pocket or your crazy Landy.

    Choice is yours ;)

    I follow your example and brim the cars every fill and never go below half full except on a long run. With diesel, keeping the tank full reduces condensation in the tank and so reduces the problem of bacterial growth.
    My P38 has averaged 24mpg on brim to brim checks over the last 12 years.:D
