Automatic, I guess there are two modes, a whole trip kind of average that never ever ever changes and a 45-60 second interval that tells me what FE I got for the last bit of driving.

I'm talking full highway trips to cold city drives, it never changes.

No I pretty much just learn as I go because the car didn't come with a real owner's manual so i just got one off of the internet for free but it is not the same.
