The onboard on most of the S197's tends to be high by about 1.5-2 MPG. On the other hand, my wife's 06 V6 is near dead on. She hand calculates and it's usually within 2 tenths of a MPG.
How do you reset the on-board numbers anyway?

I have a 2012 w/3.7 and auto w/8800 miles and I average 22-24 city and on a recent trip to Monon Indiana....I live in West Virginia by the way.... I got 31.5 on the dash display and by actual calculations...which I do on every refill...32.8 mpg. One of the reasons I traded my 2008 4.0/auto for the new model...better mileage and much better power,both cars auto,both 3.55 rear end gears,both cai.

It's quite complicated. First, push and hold the "RESET" button. Then, let go.
