Focus MPG Trip Computer

Hi all

Hope someone can help me as I am really stuck

I have a new Ford Focus Titanium, and note the trip computer for MPG and Speed shows an average, and not an actual trip MPG or trip speed, all my previous cars have had both so you can see a total MPG until you reset it, and a MPG for your current trip which resets it self after 2 hours.

Does the Focus have this function as I can not find how to toggle between the 2 anywhere and would really appreciate some help. The average bits in the trip computer do have a little symbol next to them which suggests to me it does have a toggle situation as I am thinking the little symbol is suggesting its average rather than trip but I may be wrong.

I would really appreciate any help... also the petrol remaining, is that based on the MPG average does anyone know? reason I ask is I have done a 400 mile round trip today and the MPG has gone right up to 54mpg from 45mpg and not sure what my petrol remaining in tank is based on...

Hope this makes sense and someone can help me
Thanks, Steve

Think you are going to need to read your manual. Sorry I cannot remember the menu settings from my test drive, I only remember all the functions for the driver info screen is left hand side steeringwheel toggle switches. It does have the usual average mpg info, plus the actual mpg while you are driving.
Get the manual and spend sometime learning all the functions, as it would be a drag to maybe miss some functions you are unaware that the car has.

The UK ones may be different, but in the US they only have 'Trip' MPG and Avg speed, which you reset on your own. There are 2 trips, so one of them you can just never reset.
