You should read the manual on how to reset it. If you never reset it it becomes useless and never changes. I reset my "Long term fuel economy" in my 2010 at every oil change and write the figure in the maintenance log section.

No. If you never reset it, it's actually your lifetime measure. You can use use the trip meters for longer term measures, too.

That 45.7 mpg in the first three photos is neither Trip 1 nor Trip 2. Both Trip 1 and Trip 2 show diffrerent mpg numbers and can be reset.

 

Why would you want to reset that 45.7 mpg number so you can see how you're doing for MPG on each trip when you can reset Trip 1 and Trip 2?

Probably no right or wrong way to do it. Ford gives us lots of flexibility that allows us to manipulate those three MPG numbers anyway you like.  I like to use Trip 2 for long trips (like last winter's trip to Florida). I use trip 1 one for each tank of gas and reset it each time I refuel.

 

The third MPG metric (the one shown in your first three photos) I like to reset for each outing like HybridBear does. Unlike trip 1 and trip 2 it does not have a miles driven metric associated with it. This means it is useless for comparing computer MPG vs hand calculated unless you never reset it and then, by default, it can be thought of as being associated with your car's odometer (shown at the bottom of your photos).

Texasota hit on the reason why I reset this one so often. In the Energi we use Trip 1 for each gas tank & Trip 2 is reset monthly to track monthly electricity, gas use & miles. In the Focus Electric we reset Trip 1 monthly & Trip 2 every 1000 miles when the odometer shows xx,000.

I get it. I've never reset mine and don't evne know how to, whick\h is fine with me. It's sort of interesting to me to see the overall mpg.

For those interested, below is what the Lifetime Summary looks like on a 2013. It displays after you turn the car off and after the trip summary is displayed.

I have never reset either my Trip 2 or the "Avg Fuel Economy" indicator (pics below) which is what the MPGs that are displayed on the Engage and Empower screens is referred to as in the Owner's Manuals. So in essence those displays do show my Lifetime MPG Average.

 

The Trip 2 display does show a form of a Lifetime Summary for me. My "Lifetime Summary" (Trip 2) even shows total gallons used, being as it is a 2014. But as can be seen in the pic below, the miles do roll over every 10,000 miles and the EV miles roll over every 1,000 miles. But the odometer reading at the bottom compensates some for those rollovers.

I reset my Trip 1 every time I fill-up with gas. And watching that MPG indicator on the Trip 1 display is the one best indication for me personally to know how efficiently I am driving.

 

IIRC from what I have read on these FFH forums, the Lifetime Summary, which is only available on the 2013, can also be reset by either disconnecting the 12V battery or with a master reset or both.

You haven't been around in a while, glad to see you back!  :)

 

Well, you sound busy putting miles on the car and keeping things running.

Two sets of tires and rear brakes?  Start another topic about that, it would be interesting...  Have you used your spare tire yet?

No, haven't used the spare yet. That's why I bought it, so I wouldn't need it! Murphys Law.

So being just about the last person in the world to actual have a "smartphone", I figured it was time to see if I could actually figure out the technological concept of getting my dash display onto a page in these here forums.  So hopefully I have mastered it.

I last reset back when the weather turned warm a few months ago and this is the result.

Woo hoo! You did it! ;) It's cool to see MPGs over 50 in such a nice car, no?

You know that posting numbers here without any context is kinda meaningless, right?

Dash #? Lifetime? Recent avg? Manual calc? Last tank? Last 5 tanks? One person's 37 is another person's 40.

Hello,

My 2013 has 125k miles.  My one way commute is 47 miles.  The HUD says my mileage is 43MPG for the life.  The summer MPG is about 44 mpg with average speed of 70, in the afternoon more traffic and 46mpg.
