If you calculate your average fuel economy by dividing miles traveled by gallons of fuel used (liters of fuel used by 100 kilometers traveled), your figure may be different than displayed for the following reasons:

Your vehicle was not perfectly level during fill-up.
Differences in the automatic shut-off points on the fuel pumps at service stations.
Variations in top-off procedure from one fill-up to another.
Rounding of the displayed values to the nearest 0.1 gallon (liter).

To determine your average highway fuel economy, do the following:

1. Drive the vehicle at least 5 miles (8 km) with the speed control system engaged to display a stabilized average.
2. Record the highway fuel economy for future reference.

It is important to reset fuel economy after setting the speed control to get accurate highway fuel economy readings.

For more information refer to Essentials of good fuel economy in the Maintenance and Specifications chapter.
