    Default Dash display query?

    Had my vectra since monday loving how it drives and how it looks.
    One small thing i cant seem to work out is the dash display, obviously shows the date and track/radio but also has miles

    the miles counter is going down but what for? until the tank is empty? as its going alot quicker than the mileage is clocking up.

    Any ideas?

    If it is the mileage until the tank is empty it will do a calculation based on the fuel left and how you are diving - if you are on a motorway the fuel useage will be totally different to in town, up and down the gear box etc.....

    It does sound a bit low, I get closer to 200 miles on half a tank. A long run will usually get 400 miles from a tank.

    Have you pressed the buttons on the wiper stalk to access the other info which the computer shows ?

    To be honest the vectra is far to advanced for me, ive moved up from a mk4 Astra Sri without this on board computer.

    You need to bear in mind that fuel consumption is dire until the engine is properly warmed up. To get a better idea, assuming you have the manual with the car to show you how to setup and read the computer displays, is to reset the trip computer, take it on a long run and see what that's like. Also as Simac says look at other info on the computer such as average and actual fuel consumption. The two buttons and the lower edge on the end of the right hand stalk will move you through the setup and display screens. It's all in the manual.
