Well, if eoc throws off numbers for the UltraGauge, I'm going to have to scratch them off my screen. I hate bad numbers.

I would imagine key-off would do the same thing.
Yeah I noticed that right away, and realized that gauge wasn't going to be useful while implementing EoC.

My average on the MPGuino is about 34mph over 8 miles country road 35mph limit with 2 stop signs and 2 lights, and 25 miles highway cruising at 55ish.
my tank average is skewed slightly because the guido continues counting time for 5 minutes after I arrive at my destination. So I ignore that.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

45.5 mph, from 8 recent tanks.
I sometimes don't record it but I usually do.
Generally the avg is between 43-48, so the 45.5 seems right.

I have a 50-55 mile commute each way, depending on the route I choose. With that distance, I need to move at a pretty good speed.
Coast long and prosper.

The computer of our Prius shows roughly 25 mph AVERAGE speed for our combined city/urban driving and 36 mph AVG speed when some 65 mph freeway is thown in.
