The trip computer's vary with regards to their accuracy.  I filled up my tank
(19 gallons) on Sunday & reset the computer.  I'm about empty today, I've
driven 197 miles, and the computer's stating I'm getting 10.2 MPG (I really
need to fix that rear caliper.)  Close enough for me!

87 5000CS TQ
84 5000S (2,000 miles away and a mile high)
90 80 (sibling's mode of transportation I get lynched into working on)
