Default MPG for a car life

Every time I refuel my car I re-set a trip A button to zero and this allows me to monitor an average mpg since last refueling.
Since day one I left trip B untouched and it shows the same number as an odometer. But I can't figure out how to monitor gas mileage for that trip B that would allow me to see the mpg for a car life. Any idea? Thanks.

Interesting question but I don't think you are going to be able to do that.

I bet you could do it with your phone though.

There's two mgp for the car: after last fueling, and avg for total miles, which is what you want? I think if you cycle through your dash display, you'll see the avg mpg and after last fueling. You can also go to the Fuel Consumption on the Nav display for your avg mpg. HTH.

On my ES300h there is mpg after refueling which automatically starts from zero every time you refuel and then there is the average mpg. The average mpg can be reset to zero if you click "update" the mpg on the screen. If you have never updated since you bought the car the average mpg you see is for all the miles driven.

You can also register on and use www.fuelly.com to track your mileage, but you have to enter every re-fill to be accurate.

Yes, the average mpg is not related to trip A or trip B. If I klick "update" on the "car" screen it will be set to zero no matter if you are at trip A or trip B at that that time. And this is inconvenience.
I would prefer if we had separate info for trip A and trip B. It looks like it is not available.
