Vf 595 supercharger mpg

Hey guys, my MPG meter on my car is ready terribly inaccurate. I'm getting readings of 41mpg (i wish). Im guessing it has something to do with the tune? Anyone else ran into this issue?

The computer should readjust to something closer than 41 mpg. Have you tried to reset the MPG by pushing and holding down the button on the stalk? That might get you back into a more normal reading which I would expect to be 12-14.

Yes I have reset it. I spoke to vf and it might be tune related according to them.

I get around 230 miles/tank of ~15 gallons at best. How many miles are you getting?
My MPG rating seems to be more or less in the ballpark of 18-20.
