Re: 48 mpg
tpfeffer - Perfectly normal behavior.
MPG is calculated as total fuel used divided by the miles driven. As you come off reset you are accelerating (using more fuel at varying rates) plus you haven't driven very many miles (low number on the bottom of the calculation). So yes, it will change, and pretty dramatically. But as you drive and acquire more miles, the number will approach the overall average you drive, and the small variations from that average will get overridden. So it seems that for the driving you do then 48 is your overall average. Which is a pretty good average, actually. I average 43.7.
