So as the subject implies my trip counter is wildly inaccurate, the attached photo shows the statistics for a tank of fuel. The MPG figure looks quite impressive!

Until I did the calculation... It was actually 52. So my question is; is there any way to offset or correct this calculation in diagbox, lexia or another way? Or is this just something I'll have to get used to?

I've had the car about 6 months and this has been the case every tank really.

Edit: it appears I'm unable to post photos, the statistics were: 672 miles, 64.1mpg, 35mph.

No simple way, I doubt whether it can be done in Diagbox. I have a C3 which indicates mid 60s, and in reality it is high 50s.

I guess I'll just have to subtract 12 from whatever figure it gives me then!

Was the mileage correct?

That's hard to say really, it matched up with my trip counter on the screen above it. But other than that I have no way of recording mileage.
