There is a trip mile counter, there is a push button on instruments display. It toggles between trip miles and total miles, hold it in to re-zero the trip miles.

ok,is there a trip that says mpg on the stalk or something????
Nope.

I record all my fuel consumption. Fill up to fill up and record the mileage. Most accurate way of doing it.

^^ This! Most factory fitted mpg computers aren't exactly the most honest of features, well certainly not those I have checked. All i have used so far are very over optimistic:)

The ST says 200 miles after a full tank of super!!!! Sounds about right to me!!!
My works 307 HDI says anything between 570-700 miles after i fill up. I did do over 100 miles on red though today in the 307. The needle had dropped off the gauge and the trip said --- miles until empty for the last 20 miles of my journey:lol:.
