    Probably because the fuel computer doesn't have a clue what it's doing. Mine is useless. It probably says 1 gallon used, but in reality it's probably used slightly more. Last time I filled my car up the computer said I'd used 9.8 gallons, but I'd actually had to put in 11.9 gallons to fill it! Way out!

    Try putting it in km/l mode and see if those figures match better.
