On some models, this display shows Average Fuel Economy. On other models, this display shows both Average Fuel Economy and Instantaneous Fuel Economy.

The Average Fuel Economy display shows the approximate average liters per 100 kilometers (L/100 km) or miles per gallon (mpg). This number is calculated based on the number of L/100 km (mpg) recorded since the last time this menu item was reset. The fuel economy can be reset by pressing SET/CLR while the Average Fuel Economy display is showing.

The Instantaneous Fuel Economy display shows the current fuel economy in liters per 100 kilometers (L/100 km) or miles per gallon (mpg).
