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.
