Looks like you've got 99 problems, but fuel efficiency ain't one

Wow this is funny mine says that too! But I only noticed it after I installed my tune... But honestly I never checked before for a long time. I only decided to do it cause the tune is causing my gas to drop mucho fast lol.

Is there a sending unit for that? Could be a gremlin

On the bright side, you're getting much better mileage than a Prius. Suck on that shit, hybrids.

When was the last time you reset it? That happens when it hasn't been reset for LONG time too much data to average.

Just hold down the BC button and reset it and it will go back to normal.

I thought it may have been that because I hadn't reset since I purchased it. Still didn't work though... Guess I'll try resetting the Idrive and then the battery unplugging
