Yes but's the resetting of the two trips at the same time I don't understand.

I won't bother with the stats as for my last two C5s (MK II 138 2.0 HDi) and the current C5 X7 (140 2.0 HDi) the MPG has been the same for both over the the last 8 years or so in rural West Wales, steep hills, windy, twisty country roads, little to no motorways or dual carriageways, chip covered roads. I think you get the picture:

42.8 MPG

Never saw the need. The one in the speedo only runs to 1,000 anyway.

Ah, that's what I do. I thought you meant that you reset Trip 1 and Trip 2 on the mpg displays at the same time.

Only have the two trip meters, one on the speedo, one in the central display.

You're right. I'd forgotten that the Mk1 only had one. And I had a Mk1 for 10 years!

First post in this thread. Here’s my mpg over the last few thousand miles. It’s a 2.2 twin turbo HDi VTX+ Which doesn’t appear to be the best on fuel, but it’s pokey so I’ve come to accept it!
