Every time you push the “DISP” button (6),


Every time you push the “DISP” button (6), the display will be changed among the following four displays.

(a) Instantaneous fuel consumption.

(b) Average fuel consumption.

(c) Driving range.

(d) No display.

Instantaneous fuel consumption (a)

If you selected instantaneous fuel consumption the last time you drove the vehicle, the display indicates “--.-” when the ignition switch is turned to the “ACC” or “ON” position. Unless the vehicle is moving, the display will indicate “--.-”.

Average fuel consumption (b)

If you selected average fuel consumption the last time you drove the vehicle, the display shows the last value of average fuel consumption when the ignition switch is turned to the “ACC” or “ON” position.

Unless you reset the value of average fuel consumption, the display will show the value of average fuel consumption which includes average fuel consumption during previous driving.

To reset the value of average fuel consumption, hold in the “DISP” button (6) for more than 2 seconds when the display shows an average fuel consumption value.

The display will indicate “--.-” and then will show a new average fuel consumption value after driving for a short time.

Driving range (c)

If you selected driving range the last time you drove the vehicle, the display shows “-- .-” for a few seconds and then shows the current driving range when the ignition switch is turned to the “ON” position.

The driving range shown in the display is the approximate distance you can drive until the fuel gauge indicates “E” based current driving conditions.

When the remaining fuel in fuel tank reaches a low level, the display “--.-” will appear.

If the low fuel warning light comes on, fill the fuel tank immediately regardless of the value of driving range shown in the display.

As the driving range after refueling is calculated based on the last driving condition, the value is different each time you refuel.

NOTE:
• When you reconnect the negative (-) terminal to the battery, the value of driving range will be shown after driving for a while.

• For a new vehicle with low mileage, the driving range may not be shown promptly in the display when begining to drive. The driving range will be shown after a while.

NOTE:
The values of fuel consumption and driving range shown in the display are affected by conditions such as the following; • road condition.

• surrounding traffic condition.

• driving condition.

• vehicle condition.

• when the malfunction indicator light comes on or blinks.

Unit indication of fuel consumption and driving range

You can change the unit indication of fuel consumption when selecting instantaneous fuel consumption or average fuel consumption in the display.

You can also change the unit indication of driving range when selecting driving range in the display.

To change the unit indication in the display, follow the instructions below.

You should operate the display before the vehicle moves.

1) Hold in the “SET” button (8) for more than 2 seconds.

The unit display of the thermometer will blink.
