I have just bought a new 2012 Soul Hunter. It's great. Trouble is, the handbook is a bit incomplete.
Whilst experimenting with the MPG indicator which showed up to 50.1 MPG ! ! ! a triangle kept appearing to the left of the MPG reading which made no sense. It appears when I accelerate or use more fuel but the handbook doesn't explain what it is actually telling me. Sometimes a number 3 or 4 appears. It is obviously telling me that I am using more fuel but can someone explain it more fully please ?

Just found this on the kia hotline site

Manual transaxle shift indicator
(if equipped)
This indicator informs you which gear is
desired while driving to save fuel.
For example
: Indicates that shifting up to the 3rd
gear is desired (currently the shift
lever is in the 2nd or 1st gear).
: Indicates that shifting down to the
3rd gear is desired (currently the
shift lever is in the 4th or 5th gear
If you don't want the indicator displayed,
you can turn it off by pressing the TRIP
button for more than 1 second in the
ECO ON mode

Nat - you are a genius.
That's totally clear but the book doesn't tell you anything.
Thanks.



Yes, it's a really super special edition.
I was in the Uk recently and the hire car company upgraded me to a Soul. I just loved it so
I chopped in my Sorento and bought the new "Hunter".
I am really pleased.
