    This is strange, reset mpg, from my home to work is 24.6 miles 95% freeway at 65-68 mph and when I pulled into the parking garage I was getting this.

    since you reset the mpg, my guess is that computer does not have enough data/millage (history) to calculate it accurately.
    it happens to our Tuscon. after reset and if driving nice and easy, the mpg shows about 8-10 higher and then eventually settles down to a relatively accurate reading.
    I have to read the manual as to how to rest the mpg for the tundra :) I tried by holding the button down (like our other cars) and it did not reset and it went off my radar.
    btw, I also don't recall having the green thing to the left of P either. what is that?
    I have to go in the car one day and play with everything ... lol

    No worry Forney. The next time you visit the pump and do the math, getting half of that mpg rating should make you jump up and click the heals.

    Tundra + high MPG = heavenly bliss!!

    Especially for those with a 38 gal tank!!

    Aah, the infamous cruise control ... no wonder I didn't recognize the symbol. I never use it, like to know where my right foot is relative to the brake.
    normally u see the words "cruise control" in green. it does resemble male symbol.
