That's your average fuel economy. The bottom bar is the instantanious fuel economy.

Re: Fuel economy...

If it's reading 28.3 average, it means it is not working properly. No GC gets avg. mpg that high.

He's in Canada, so it's miles per something other than gallons.

Re: Fuel economy...

Most likely, it is displaying the mileage in kilometers. If so, 28.3 KM equates to 17.58 miles.

Re: Fuel economy...

Do you have the EVIC set to metric units? Then it means 28.3 L per 100 kms, which is terribly bad!
Should be in the 10 - 14 range as a general rule over a tankful or more.

Re: Fuel economy...

Definitely something is not right, My Srt is consuming 20 litres per 100 kms.

What's the mileage on your jeep? maybe you need to take it for a nice highway drive

Seems weird. So just reset it. Get a more normal number.

Re: Fuel economy...

Good point, but I don't think so, because it's there when I start the car at -15 C. (Minus 15 Celsius )
