In Reply to: Bad MPG indicator on 5 speed ? posted by Totem on October 24, 1999 at 00:45:02:
: Has anyone had a problem with the MPG indicator (just below the RPM indicator)?
: When getting close to a stop sign, I usually shift to Neutral, and let the car roll for a several feet. Getting closer to the stop sign, breaking to 0 MPH, the MPG indicator rapidly increases to about 25 MPG, and then goes back to below 50 MPG. Is this normal? It does not make sense since the RPMs are at about 850, and there's not much gas consumption. I can't recall seeing this behavior while driving during the week.

: '00 323i Sport/Premium
: 5 speed
Mine does the same thing. (328i) I've also noticed that it will read a much higher mpg in gear coasting to a stop than when the car is in neutral coasting. Go figure.
