I have the full ur-quattro "glass cockpit" - no moving parts whatever - it's
all bright orange LCD. The trip counter is an alternate display mode of the
odometer - I can have either the car's total milage or the trip.
The multi-function display is digital figures below the pseudo-analogue tach.
It displays average mpg, range and time driven. BTW, I don't hang about
much (average motorway speeds in flowing traffic are 85mph) and I use full
boost a fair bit for overtaking - I average 28.9mpg indicated.
All of the display apart from the speedometer can be disabled (turn off) by
pressing in the lower right binnacle switch.
