Fuel Economy Display

Obviously when fuel economy is measured in l/100 km lower is better. However, my display show "Best" as 99 l/100 km. Anyone know how to reset/fix or is it a go to dealer thing?

Yes, I've read that page of the manual. Don't know why you would assume that someone hasn't - perhaps protocol in this forum you need to say you've read the manual and searched other threads before posting?

Anyhow, as that page shows nothing is said about "Best" fuel consumption. From further trial and error, I've worked out that you have an opportunity to update Best right after turning engine off. It seems I mistakenly assumed that Best would be automatically updated after each trip and/or after you turn engine off. The manual, in this instance and quite a few others, is inadequate in my opinion.

To be fair after switching the ignition off the dashboard display always shows both ‘current and best’ fuel consumption figures and prompts the driver to ‘update best’ if they so wish.
