    Default Range display

    I put diesel in my car on Thursday and the range display is slowly going up instead of down the further i drive! Anyone else had this happen?

    is your car a petrol? how much diesel did you put in?

    put it this way, putting diesel in a petrol is a little less damaging

    oh right, what you mean is that the more you drive the more the range is going up?

    the range will constantly be re-calculating itself whilst the car is on the move. You probably are driving fairly efficiently for the range to keep going up.

    No picture evidence but had mine showing 908 one day. It took 35 miles of 45 mph to get that but was quite thrilling!!

    I filled my tank on my 3.2 V6 afetr some town driving. it said 281 miles left............................ With a full tank.. But it soon changed when I drove on the A38
    I once pressed the rest button on the display whilst travelling on the Motorway. It was fun to watch the figures go up, well past 48 MPG. Then when it sorted it,s self out. Back to normal 3.2 figures.
