The total mileage on the car has always been irrelevent to the mileage- my last reset was at about 3k miles.
It's so strange that different drivers get such different results with this car. I don't have MFT but after 12B37 I've noticed no substantial change in mileage, car- or hand-calculated. Just a definite worsening of shift quality.
