Don't really care as long as it doesn't dip below the 20s. For my car that would be bad.

I care about it to the point that it's my default display on my trip computer. But I've never gone through figured out the accuracy of the display. It's an average for the previous 500 miles in the first place.

I've gotten readings as high as 27.1 MPG compared to the EPA mileage of 28 MPG. But then I was hurtling across Texas at 75 MPH, which is nothing like an EPA drive cycle.

I hand calculate it every time I get fuel so I know what's going on.

However, I know I get more smiles per gallon in my diesel guzzling truck than I do with my gasser
