Unhappy Scangauge II Question (suddenly seeing inflated MPG numbers)

I've been using my SGII on my Jeep Wrangler and am getting pretty good at economizing what I've got.

However, yesterday, I stopped at a store, five minutes, in and out. When I started up and pulled away, the SG was reporting MPG well over 20 while putting down a side street. When I got up to speed on the main road it was up over 30. It even showed me getting better MPG under acceleration! What happened?

I reset back to the defaults, reset the engine size, fuel tank. It's still showing the same overstated MPG readings. Did some setting get 'static zapped' or something? Is there another value that should be reset?

Any ideas?
