Impossible avg consumption readings

Post by sunking555 » Thu Sep 28, 2017 8:57 am

OK, so today I noticed something very weird about the average consumption calculation in my Niro.

I started the car and the overall average consumption (after refuelling it yesterday and driving it with quite heavy acceleration) showed 5.8 l/100km. I drove to work and the number had dropped to 4.4 l/100km by the time I pulled into the parking lot. And then I turned the engine off to notice that the average consumption for the trip (on the screen that is showed for a few seconds) showed average consumption of 4.6 l/100km.

And that is just not possible. If the overall average dropped from 5.8 to 4.4., then the average consumption for this trip should have been way lower than 4.4. Anybody with similar experiences? What could be going on here? I'm completely puzzled.
