Is Dte Available?

Recommended Posts

Seems like a relatively lame thing, but is there a distance-to-empty readout anywhwere? I've looked, can't find one, and being a guy, I can't look it up in the manual.

:P

Looking it up would be admitting defeat.

Anyway, I've noticed the fuel gauge is nicely linear, and doesn't swing to-and-fro like on most GM's pre-1992, so it would actually be useful. I've also noticed, from first click-off of the fuel pump to truly full, the tank holds about 2 more gallons, so while exiled to Oregon, we'll never have a truly full tank.

I feel a rant coming on about the utter stupidity of this 'full serve' law...I'll stop, now.

I think if you hit INFO on your computer console (if you don't have the NAV system), you will eventually see a readout that shows the mileage to empty based on your current average mileage consumption.

Wait a sec, dude, *thanks* for joggin' my noggin. I didn't look under the *other* trip computer thing. Ours has the NAV system, which is worth doing without DTE, honestly, but still, it'd be neat.

Doesnt the Nav screen have the DTE readout? It does on the GS because it doesnt have the readout anywhere else.

all of the nav systems that were made after 2001 have a dte readout on them....i want to say they are access through the "info" function but i can't be sure without the thing in front of me.

I've looked at both 'info' screens and DTE ain't there. Current MPG, MPG since filling is on one, the other has avg. speed since reset and a second trip odometer. All *but* DTE.

Hmmm, maybe I have it tured off on the NAV screen, but I can't imagine where it would be without being in the way...
