fwd: Re: First trip

The computer on my 90 Coupe Quattro is pretty damn close, and the computer 
on my ex-'89 90 was dead on. Change tire circumference, like upgrading, 
will change both computer and speedo accuracy. Are you on stock size tires?

The trip computer said that for my 160mi ride at an average 71mph I peaked 
28.2mpg . . .

I don't trust the trip computer.  Mine consistently overstates mileage by 
mpg.  Always wondered why but figured it's not worth the trouble to debug 
out.  My true mileage measured the old fashioned way is 21 mpg avg.
