    how many miles...

    How many miles do you get once your petrol light just comes on, reason i ask is iv just fitted the trip computer and its telling me i have 51 miles left and my fuel light has just came on after a drive round testing it.

    getting 31.1mpg avg apparently

    am i right in thinking...

    range miles left in tank
    inst cons consumption live report (always changing)
    consumption what your getting on avg 31.1mpg
    trip cons ???
    speed ???
    trip distance distance youve covered since last reset (same as your milage clock)

    can some one will in the blanks please

    range - miles left in tank
    inst cons - instant consumption. What you are using at the moment, i.e put your foot down and watch it drop.
    consumption - what your getting on avg 31.1mpg since last reset
    trip cons - how many gallons you have used since it was last reset.
    speed - average speed since it was last reset
    trip distance - distance you have covered since last reset

    Normally around 40miles left the light will come on. When it gets to 30 miles left the trip computer will auto switch to the 'range' screen.
