I don't have the gph display, only the mpg and mph so I can easily calculate it. What I remarked is that the mpg display decreases more or less quickly depending on the temperatures, but also the consumption when I change to neutral. If I was accelerating quickly then it takes a lot of time to decrease to the stable idle consumption.

Now when I put in neutral while I was in engine break (DFCO) then the consumption increases to the stable idle consumption. I'm wondering if the strategy can save gas, but I doubt about it as you have to accelerate to a greater speed and loose noticeable speed during the 2 seconds of engine break needed to reach DFCO.

Wanted to know such data since a long time as my iMPG (instantaneous) display in scenic doesn't show any value under 35km/h (22mph) and I'm often blocked in (very) slow traffic.

The looong story : http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ault-4527.html

My cars are European so EOBD (European name for OBD2) is mandatory for gasoline since 2001 and for diesel since 2004. Both my cars are diesel.
