Why reset it? Just use one of the trip meters as your own LMPG, or start a fuel log on Fuelly or Ecomodder.

Ah, duh, yeah.

But the OP could still start a fuel log.

Like always I just buy another car. But I know fellows who will have a car with three hundred thousand miles take the dash out go to a junkyard find a car with 60,000 miles take the dash out of it and put back in the dash of the car that has 300,000 .The car still looks the same and drives the same but it's worth more money with a junkyard display dash in it.

I can think of a few reasons. The best being when you buy a used car and want to have this function track the mpg you get.

The worst being if you want to sell the car and inflate the lifetime mpg to fool the next buyer.

A lot of people consider doing it so the lifetime mileage reflects their own usage. But it's probably better to just leave it and log tank fill-up mileage to keep track of your own fuel economy.

In any event, here's a link to a list of various resets, including the lifetime mpg one:
