God, that's so unfair. Why won't they give us that HUD in NA? :(

I've put about 500 miles on mine, though my city mileage according to the display slowly drops from about 29 to 25 as of this morning. I live in a very hilly city with terrible, terrible roads and cold weather.

The car is calculating fuel economy in liters per 100 km and then converting it to us mpg. In test mode I've seen the RAFE reading things like 6.9 which would not make sense as a mile per gallon or gallon per mile, but as a l/100km it would be equivalent to 34 mpg us or 41 mpg uk.

Is it not possible to reflash existing Foci with these features? Surely all these features exist in the OBD II configuration(hence Scangauge), it just needs to be programmed to display.

Hey Tytanium,

I'm not a technician, so I'm not in the best position to answer technical questions. This might be a good question for your dealership's service manager though!

These numbers boggle my mind. Can you describe your typical driving? Do you do 95% freeway cruising at modest speeds?
