: BULLSHIT!
: REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A GERMAN CAR AND THAT IN EUROPE THE FUEL CONSUMPTION IS INDICATED IN
: LITERS PER HOUR AND NOT IN MILES PER GALLON. THUS VOLUME INSTEAD OF DISTANCE. THIS GAUGE IS A DIRECT INDICATION OF THE QUANTITY OF INJECTED FUEL AT THE VERY MOMENT (REAL TIME). THIS QUANTITY OF FUEL IS OF COURSE DEPENDENT ON THE AIR FLOW TO THE ENGINE, LOAD ON THE ENGINE, TROTTLE POSITION, ETC. DISTANCE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. FOR THE STATES BMW USED EXACTLY THE SAME GAUGE BUT CHANGED THE SCALE TO MPG. YOU'RE ACTUALLY READING VOLUME.
: I WAS OFFERING TO SEND A COPY OF THE BMW DIAGNOSTIC MANUAL THAT EXPLANES IN DETAIL THE FUNCTIONING OF THIS GAUGE TO PUT AN END TO THIS DISCUSSION AND THIS GUESSING FROM PEOPLE WHO CLEARLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR "MATHEMATICAL RELATIONSHIP",
: I PREFER THE "TECHNICAL EXPERTISE" FROM THE BMW MANUALS.
: LUC.
