The distance to empty recalculates periodically based on the amount of fuel left in the tank and the current fuel economy. So if the mileage is still going up you can go for a while before the distance to empty drops as the fuel economy used in the calculation updates.

There was so much more information shown on this display on the European MK3 models, but apparently North Americans are easily distracted and sue happy so to prevent this they didn't allow us to have much data displayed at once.
Having filled up on Monday and drove almost 100 miles since then, i'm at about 7/8 of a tank. The MTE still hangs around 200 no matter what, didn't go down the entire 40 mile trip to KC. I assume this will start changing the next fillup I do?
