Are you saying that the car, internally, does not know how much fuel it is injecting and what speed you are going? That is impossible.
What I said was that it will not use that instantaneous data in the MPG calculation until a sufficient sample size has occured such as to generate the moving average again.

It needs the fuel flow data in order to figure out what the injector pulsewidths need to be and all the rest of the internal parameters, it just won't give them to you in the form of a real time instant fuel economy measurement.

Again, could we please get back on the topic of the DCT, its behaviors and the updates that have gone on so far.

I just past 2800 miles on my car and so far apart from me provoking it in manual mode at low speed and maybe one or two times in drive when it was in too low a gear after coasting down and would wind out to 3-4k before shifting after slowing down to a light then accelerating again before shifting up. It assumes that I want power and decides to hold the gear which is nice, although it may feel abrupt compared to having just been slowing down.
