Re: Fuel Usage!!!!!!!

Just curious did the Au XR8's have the instant fuel usage meter as mentioned here???

I know it has odometer / Trip meter / DTE / speed alert but I haven't found instant fuel usage.

Re: Fuel Usage!!!!!!!

anyone else tried liters per hour in their car? Its a better way to see how much fuel is going through at an instant, in my opinion
