I know the actual MPG varies from the onboard computer verses manual calcs. I just wounder if anyone has compared there odometer to mile posts to see how accurate it is...JOE

Check out a prior post "Discrepancies between Energy Monitor and actual MPG ". I typically see that the Energy Monitor reports FE roughly 5% higher than the manual calculations...
