Hi all, a few months back I had a electrical problem and power had to be dissconnected for a few days while repairs were made. Ever since it is showing that I use a average of 12.3 L/100km, whether if I am highway driving or sand driving, does not change. I know it is not using near this much. Any one had this issue before and if so how can it be rectifies.

Have you reset the trip computer ?

I reset the fuel usage metre every tank.

After reset it goes back to the 12.3, its a thought it may be a memory problem

Random thought. If there was no power for a few days, did the info display reset to factory defaults. I know mine was reading km per litre when I bought it. I had to change it to l/100km.

And you wouldn't be the first to fall for that either, a dead giveaway is when you lift off throttle the display will read 99 instead of about 0.
Been there done that :roll:
