On mine, once you’re on the “consumption” screen, click the “ok” button on the steering wheel to go from screen 1 to 2.

1 is the average for the trip, 2 should be average since last reset.

Y’all might want to read your manual and learn about your car - lol.

I haven't come across in any of the books either. I'll get it out and make another run at it with fresh eyes. If anyone knows what page, I'd appreciate it.

Our Passat falls into the 2-4 mpg high MFI readout that several others in this thread have reported. Our average over nearly 69K miles, strictly hand-calculated from the pump receipt and odometer, is reported in the Fuelly below.

I believe I found the information in the big book on page 28.

Yeah, I couldn't help you on page numbering because I have a GSW.

I learned how everything works just by fooling around with the buttons and menus. Everything should be within thumb's reach of the steering wheel for these operations. I think there's also a quick-start guide inside the manual binder that may help.
