Re: DTE Miles till empty. What do you get?

If I fill-up after a highway trip and my average miles per gallon is 22.5, the DTE will show about 560 miles.

If I fill up after local driving and my average miles per gallon is 18, the DTE will show about 450 miles.

Sure seems to be based on most recent average miles per gallon.


Think about it, how else could the DTE be determined?

Re: DTE Miles till empty. What do you get?

From the Owners Manual:

Distance To Empty (DTE)
Shows the estimated distance that can be traveled with
the fuel remaining in the tank. This estimated distance is
determined by a weighted average of the instantaneous
and average fuel economy, according to the current fuel
tank level. DTE cannot be reset through the SELECT
button.

Yup, I've noticed the same thing.

But since my right foot is literally made of lead, my numbers are somewhat lower.

Re: DTE Miles till empty. What do you get?

My '11 Larado X usually shows between 465 and 485 DTE after a fill up, depending on the current AVG MPG showing, which is usually between 19 to 20. On a long road trip where the AVG MPG is up around 23/24 my DTE will show as high as 540 after a fill up.
