Re: 1.2 16v 2001 punto how many miles per gallon do you get

im gonna try slowing down a little and see if i get anymore, im still getting use to this car i have had it since saturday and im still reving a bit much when pulling away coz im used to driving diesels and i find you have to be heavy with the pedals so when i get a little better hopefully it shoudl get more miles, does the computer sort the miles per gallon even when you dont see it on the screen all the time i have my miles showing

Its calculated all the time even when you don't have it displayed. I wouldn't trust it too much tbh. I can remember having 36mpg on my trip computer after 40litres and I worked it could manually and actually had high 39mpg. Could have been due to the bigger alloys .

my mpg seems to go down when idling, and it doesn't go back up again.

Think there's something wrong but can't figure out what.
