Are you using the instant or avg indicator? The Instant will jump around a lot more than the avg will.

Are you looking at the current mpg rather than the average mpg?

Info button on left spoke will allow selection of avg mpg.

When i switch to the "AVG MPG" screen, it fluctuates ranges from 69mpg to 15mpg. Whereas when I first purchased the car, it would hover around a tighter range. Is there something I am supposed to reset?

I do reset my "TRIP A" odometer count each time I gas up.

While it's in AVG MPG screen, try pressing the INFO button for 1.5 seconds to clear/reset.

(nothing to do with reseting TRIP A odometer)

What happens when you set it to Instant MPG?

It gives you the instant mpg. Which fluctuates constantly with throttle position, speed, uphill, downhill, wind, acceleration, etc

The "Current MPG" displays your current estimated mpg every 2 seconds.

I pressed and held onto the Info button and it seems to have done the trick.
