2014 Trip Odometer cool features

Not sure if non-premium cars have this or if even 2013's have it but, I think the trip odometer in my 2014 GT premium car is really cool. If you fill your gas tank up the trip odometer will keep track of how many hours/minutes/seconds you have on that tank as well as how many gallons/10th's you have used along with your miles driven on that tank and your gas mileage. I have found the gallons used to be spot on each time I fill it up. If it shows 14.2 gallons used, it takes 14.2 gallons to fill it up. Interesting note, last Friday night I went to the drag strip with only 3 gallons of gas in my tank when I got there. Each of my 5 passes took 2/10ths of a gallon of gas to run. I left with 2.0 gallons and used another 4/10ths to get to the gas station where my GT took 14.4 gallons to fill up. I do believe we have 16.0 gallon fuel tanks. Also, the low fuel light comes on in my car at 3.5 gallons left.


2014 GT 5.0 Premium (Ordered 2/1/2013, received 3/20/2013) 6A - 401A premium trim - Steeda CAI - (Mike Rousch) SCT Dynojet custom tune - Lethal offroad H-pipe - J&M LCA's - BMR relocation brackets - Circle D 5C converter - DSS aluminum drive shaft - front sway bar delete kit - stock mufflers - and a stock 3:15 gear. Best pass so far - 60 ft. 1.577, 1/4 mile e.t. 11.567, mph 117.22.

My 07' V6 has the same feature. I really like it. I sometimes feel the MPG measurement is quite conservative though. I've never thought to compare how much gas was used to how much was put back in though. Interesting to see it matches so closely. This leads me to believe maybe my MPG readings aren't terribly far off.

This must be a premium feature. My Base '13 does not have this.

My MPG is right on with the trip odometer calculation. I used to use my calculator to manually figure my mileage but, there is no need to do that anymore. The thing I like the most is seeing exactly how much gas I have used. It really came in handy at the drag strip.
