"Miles to Empty" readout goes crazy
In an attempt to get my car running yesterday after a failed SCT tune upload, I disconnected the battery terminal for a few minutes. When I finally got the car running, the "miles to empty" readout said 345, which was more than 100 miles further than it's read previously--plus the tank was only half full. I filled up shortly afterwards and the readout shot up to 385, something I would expect to see on the wife's Accord.
Usually at fill up the readout will be in the 225 range. In the 7,000 mile life of the car, I've only averaged 15 mpg, so there's no way the number is anywhere near accurate.
Could disconnecting the battery and flashing the ECU make the readout go nuts? I drove the car 50 miles today and the readout is still insanely optimistic. Everything else seems normal.
