Trip computer - supplementary information
Average fuel consumption is calculated from the last resetting.
There may be a slight error in the reading if a fuel-driven heater* has been used.
The average speed is calculated for the driving distance driven since the last reset to zero.
The information for current fuel consumption is updated continuously - approximately once per second. When the car is driven at low speed the consumption is shown per time unit - at a higher speed it is shown related to mileage.
Different units (km/miles) can be selected for the display - see the section "Change unit".
Range - distance to empty tank
The trip computer shows the approximate distance that can be driven with the fuel quantity remaining in the tank.
No guaranteed range remains when the heading Distance to empty shows "----".
The calculation is based on the average fuel consumption over the last 30 km and the remaining driveable fuel quantity.
An economic driving style generally results in a longer driving distance. For more information on how fuel consumption can be influenced, see Volvo Car Corporation's Environmental Philosophy.
Digital speed display 1
The speed is shown in the opposite unit (kmh/mph) in relation to the main instrument. If it is calibrated in mph then the trip computer shows the corresponding speed in km/h and vice versa.
Resetting with "Analog"
With current trip computer heading - Trip meter T1, Trip meter T2 or Average speed - shown in the combined instrument panel:
Each heading must be zeroed individually.
Resetting with "Digital"
Average speed & Average consumption:
Select one of the following options with the thumbwheel and activate with OK:
- l/100 km
- Reset both
You can change unit (km/miles) for distance and speed in the menu system My Car, see MY CAR.
In addition to in the trip computer, these units are also changed in Volvo's navigation system*.
