Fuel mileage meter unit
on: September 14, 2018, 02:09:12 PM
Hi , at the moment the instrument panel is showing miles per litre , is it possible to change to miles per gallon . I have looked in the handbook , but to be honest l can't make head or tail of it 🤔🤔 .
Any advice on this one ?

Cheers BOB

No, it's miles per litre or km per litre.


As you purchase your fuel in litres, it's probably worth getting used to it.

I'm getting around 10 miles per litre (which is 45.54 miles per gallon).

With a 20.8 litre tank, that is about 208 miles to empty (although I find I get more than that as I top up the tank to the brim).

14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (sold)
18 VFR800X - 9,000 miles

My 2015  definitely displays miles per gallon, always 50+ per gallon. :046:

Hmmm, you are correct!   :062:

I've just read the Owners Manual (that makes a change!) and you can indeed select mpg.....page 34 of the Owners Manual.

I think I'll leave mine as miles/litre as I'm used to it now and we fill up in litres so what is the point in using gallons?
