Smile my language

Buried in the software of my Mk V11 Golf I foundan MPG read out, my language!
The centre of the speedo still has all the detail in Kls and Litres/ per/100, etc. Now in the central display it shows MPG, distance in miles etc. This I understand.
39.4 MPG round the suburbs in short trips.

Real numbers! I'm with you Sean. My display can be set to read UK English and show MPG but under acceleration I get numbers like 10 MPG so I leave it in KMPH which, since I don't fully comprehend, leads to a sense of ignorant bliss.
I mean, 27 litres per 100 kilometres sounds pretty good mileage to me.
Regards,
Brian

I concur... even with a 500SL or a 690SEL
