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?

Yes, your experience was the same as mine. Sounds as if restarting may be a reliable solution. Wondering how common this quirk may be.

Maybe we're finally discovering the real reason how some of our forum mileage champs get their LMPG numbers so high! <ducking>
