MPG trip reset and A/C question


Recommended Posts

Good evening all,

I have had my S TYPE 2.7 diesel auto for a couple of weeks now and I would like to know if the mpg trip can be reset so I can get a correct reading now I am using the Jag for work and I do 50 miles a day mostly motorway.

The handbook says to always have the a/c and climate control on auto so it keeps the car at the correct temp and stops condensation building up. Can somebody confirm this or am I better to just use the heater as normal.

The car is a real gem on the motorway , so easy to drive and it must be the most comfortable car I have had the pleasure to own.

Thanks for listening,

Gary. Proud Jag owner at last.

Hi Gary,


Glad you are enjoying your Jaguar.


You can reset you MPG quite easily by pressing the button at the end of the left hand stem on the steering wheel and the reset button on the right hand side instrument cluster. Handbook 106/107.


And always keep you climate control on auto [except when you have the "defrost" button on which will only be for a minute or two when the auto will switch off automatically and will need switching back on when the car is demisted.


There is a lot of reading in the handbook!


Has your car got the touch screen display?

Hello Fellow Jaguar Owners  !!    I Have A Question If I May, When Driving In Town Fuel Computer Gives A Certain Range, Why Does This Range Not Automatically Recalculate When My mpg Increases On A Motorway    ?   🤔     Yours  Tim Ross

Hi Tim, and welcome to the club.

I understand what you are saying, and I can think about London driving and the computer giving a result.  The computer will keep a full record for a journey and journeys.  If you want each journey's detailed mpg you will have to cancel each journey at the end.

I went from Sutton Coldfield to Sheffield some years ago starting with a blank range. The journey out was mostly on motorways/duel carriageways with the M1 all 50 mph due to work on there Motorway. The 89 miles showed 50.2 mpg. Cancelled!  The return journey on a different route [M1 and M42]  showed a result of 46 mpg as I was driving mostly at 70mph.

Hope this helps.
