Oh, absolutely. I do the same thing. So far my pump averages are 48 MPG, but in at the pump so sparingly that it’s pretty rare (which is great!). Of course, this car doesn’t even come with a factory MPG readout. I kind of despise the factory setups anyhow. My least favourite are the ones that tell me my mileage every 5 minutes instead of an instantaneous readout. Pointless.

Thank you! Im really happy to have a nice stable of efficient cars. While working on my civic I ride my Aprilia SR50R around, and that thing gets 95-113 MPG reliably. Feels like heaven!

Ironically, my Prius has an instantaneous mpg readout, but it's not accurate. LOL

BTW, I want to do a spoiler like that on my car.

If you are trying to drive as efficiently as possible, even a two second delay is too much.

I drive a new Rav4 Hybrid at work sometimes. That has 1 minute intervals, but it keeps the last ten minutes as a bar graph on the screen. It will show a trend, but unless you are on a constant grade and speed for a full minute, it is pretty useless. The Rav4 Hybrid is a nice car. I can get 50 mpg on flat ground between 55 - 60 mph.
