There is if I switch to 'Performance' screen on the TFT display. There is also a HUGE MPH readout that the wife can read even without her specs!

When I'm feeling frugal I have popped over onto the 'eco' display now and again . Though it's not telling me anything I don't know, I do at least feel like teacher is stood over me; so I tend to behave a little and get better mpg with it on. I'm clearly a target driven person
Belisarius and Arb like this.

I wish we could mix the colours, I like the layout in performance but the red makes me angry and aggressive, I find the Eco colours far more soothing and relaxing I often switch to Radio 4 or classical FM.

I won't be entering any discussion in respect of this. I have taken this image today, 21 December 2014. The 367.7 miles here include approximately 50 miles worth of driving too and around York today in none motorway conditions. Also, approximately 45 miles driving in the Dales. The remainder is motorway type driving. I have in the past calculated that the on board with my car is about 1.5% out from real fuel useage calculations. Not too bad considering approximately 95 miles of this was none motorway.

Hi again all, been busy the past few weeks.

My D2 R Design Lux Nav was new in September this year. Company car.
The way my company reimburses business use is that I claim per mile for business trips, so fuel economy was important. I have done the old brim tank to brim tank and calculated the MPG three times now and the figure in each case is 58 mpg. Litres per km mean nothing to me😱😱.

Mixed driving, rural and motorway. Not exactly light on the right foot.
Hope this helps.
