Is it me, or does the trip computer *always* say 372 miles to empty when it's full? Also, has anyone ever seen the miles go *up* rather than down? On my previous cars, if I sit with the cruise at 70 for example and it says 300 miles to empty, then slow down to 60 for a while, it'll say something like 340 miles to empty. On the Kia, I've never seen it do that. If anything, all it seems to be is another fuel gauge where 100% full is calibrated to 372 miles, and 0% = 0 miles.

Anyone else noticed that?

The figure you get after fill up is worked out on the previous trip you just done. So if you had hammered the car then the fuel tank range will be low but if you are easy on the right pedal then it will have a higher value. I had this on my Ceeds and the reading did change after I filled up and ran the car at a different pace. Also had it on a few vans I drove too.
