Does the Trip Computer Lie About MPG?
Only 40 miles on the clock when I took it.
Reset the trip computer and began the 160 mile
drive home all highway.
At the end the trip computer stated:
Average speed: 57 mph (this is true since I babied
it the whole way down).
Average mpg: 34.2
This last figure sounds bogus since the v6 is rated
by the EPA 20-30 mpg and no one has reported
such a high figure before. Could it be wrong?
It was just me in the car cruising at 55 mph for
a bit then 63 mph for a bit and so forth. Never
reved the engine about 2700.
