gatmog I didn't understand what the issue was--until I realized I have a job 2 13 and it resets all the values with one hold of the button.

I just learned that today, when I went to see how many miles were on trip 1, which I had reset when filling up my car right after buying it a month ago,and it said 68... I thought I had accidentally reset it then realized it only went to 2000 before restarting....

Technically not the case, since Job 2 builds were also before February which was the time frame from when they changed it over afaik.

However yes the newest 2013 models can reset all four trip values at once.

My normal process is to reset trip1/mpg1/timer1 when I refill the gas tank and when I start a trip I reset trip2/mpg2/timer2. I don't pay much attention to the timer but I do with the trip and mpg. I find my mpg display is pretty accurate versus calculated values with tanks fillings but there is a tank-to-tank variation of as much as 2mpg. That is, the display may differ from the value I calculate for a given tank but averaged over several tanks and for the 15000 miles I've had the car the display average is within about 0.2mpg of calculated -- not to shabby...

I'm not sure what's different in the Escape that is does these resets much faster or why Ford would have decided to go with 5 seconds for any car -- just makes no sense. I've driven some rental cars where the reset is instant and that's maybe not a great idea either, but it really shouldn't need to be more than 1-2 seconds.
