In Reply to: Bad MPG indicator on 5 speed ? posted by Totem on October 24, 1999 at 00:45:02:
On Canadian models, the mileage meter is in litres/100km, and at a stop, the reading is on 0, which makes absolutely no sense. 0 litres for 100km. wow, that's some seriously good mileage.
: 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.
