The AVG gauge resets to zero after the ignition is off for a set period of time - either 90 seconds or 3 minutes. That's because AVG is your current trip mpg, and the developers of the SG set it up to reset your trip mpg, distance, and fuel consumed after an engine shutdown.

The SG still maintains day and tank parameters in memory, but current trip parameters disappear. The SG's competition, the Ultra-gauge, takes the opposite tack, and maintains trip parameters until the user resets the trip.
