Autometer unstable?

I have a Factory computer onboard, and even starting my tripcomputer at 50 miles/h with cruise control (electronic), the instant fuel consumption is highly variable, even in an apparently flat pavement.

Only average mpg is representative. The other is illustrative as show you instant changes of pushing the trottle, climb or going down slope.

The fact autometer varies instante mpg means it is GOOD, not bad. If it didnīt varies its real time mpg, should be lying.
