Temporary malfunction of fuel consumption gauge

Hello Insighters,

Last night, I made my regular commute to Los Angeles (110 miles), and in the last mile of my trip, the fuel gauge stopped working. All the graphic elements remained, except for the bar indicator. I switched the display to the alternate "liter" version, with no correction of the problem. This morning, when I started the car to return to San Diego, the gauge worked properly again, as if there had never been a problem. Is this an unusual problem? Has anyone else experienced this?

Swiping! <g>

Its a problem that has been reported in here from time to time. I've also experienced it a couple of times. Simply takes a key-off (pause a couple of seconds) key-on to correct.

My current LMPG over the last 42K miles is 150 MPG :p :p :p
