Lowest MPG Obtained on EVIC?

For those of you who have the EVIC MPG Feature I was wondering what is the Lowest MPG that you've obtained on the readout?

I got mine down to 7.4L / 100Km on the weekend.

I filled up the gas tank, reset the MPG and set the Cruise Control @ about 95Km/Hr. It was at 10.0L / 100Km before I reset it. It went down, down, down all the way to 7.4L and then went up and stayed at 7.7.

The lowest it showed me was going 70km/hr on cruise out in Alberta. It was 6.8 L/100kms. It didn't stay that way for very long though.

Re: Lowest MPG Obtained on EVIC?

When you are viewing the MPG or litres/100kms on the dash, press and hold the button (the one you would use to cycle through the views). The reading will "reset" and give you an instant read-out. This works for the timer as well.

The best I've seen is ~7.5 on the highway with the cruise set to 105 and a tail wind.

You'll see -- briefly in the Litres/100Km when you successfully reset the computer. I reset it every time that I fill the gas tank.
