How do I use the Best Average Fuel Economy setting?

The driver information center (DIC) provides you with a lot of information. At any moment, you can choose what information you want the DIC to display. To have the Best Average Fuel Economy setting displayed, press the Menu button on the turn signal lever until the Trip/Fuel Information is displayed. Then, use the arrows on the turn signal lever to scroll through the options until you reach Best Average Fuel Economy. The Best Average Fuel Economy setting allows you to see how your driving behavior impacts your efficiency. You can also compare the efficiency of your vehicle to other times in which you have traveled the same distance. On the left side of the display, you will see a running average of the fuel efficiency you have achieved for the most recently traveled selected distance. On the right side, you will see the best average fuel efficiency that you have ever achieved for the selected distance. In the middle of the DIC, you will see a graph displaying the current fuel economy.
