Compass Limited MPG

Hey everyone-
I just bought a 2012 Compass Limited. I love it, but I feel a little out of touch with the new displays and stuff (I had a 2000 Cherokee for about 8 years)

Can someone quickly go over how the fuel economy/MPG read-out works? I've been digging through the manual and couldn't really find a definitive answer. At first I just assumed it was gauging how many miles per gallon I'm getting depending on my driving - but I noticed it keeps changing. So I'm just not sure what's going on.

Thanks in advance!

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
I bet you're seeing the average mpg listed above and the instantaneous mpg below. Above the instantaneous mpg will be a little triangle, the represents the average mpg number. So if your instantaneous is past the triangle you're getting better than your average. And vice versa.

Re: Compass Limited MPG

I also bought COMPASS Limited 2012 model on May,2012.
It has a big petrol consumption. To be honest I don't like its the acceleration too. Very slooow response to when U press the gas.
