I manually reset trip B every morning before starting the engine. I used to use it to compare different driving styles over a given piece of terrain, but have found styles that seem to work best at this point.
Trip A is automatically set to reset at fillup. At fillup I always use a credit card and write total miles driven and trip A mpg on the credit card slip. I then post those numbers at fuelly.
With this system I'm able to use mpg numbers to develop best mpg driving style, see daily mpg, see mpg per fillup, see total / overall mpg (currently a very satisfactory 50.0 mpg).
Principles supporting my driving style for even higher EX mpg:
Have the engine operate as little as possible, especially when standing still or moving slowly; while also meeting my demands for power and maneuvering. This means most battery charging while cruising city streets and rural roads, max regen from slowing down and downgrades, and only using heater or A/C when the engine is on for other purposes.
