    I keep the avg MPG screen up to remind me to drive like I'm pushing my foot into a rusty nail. Sometimes I toggle to check the outside temp, if I'm curious. How about you?

    Instantaneous MPG thinking it might help me save gas... it never does.

    Instantaneous MPG is a good one to save on gas.
    I have the Ultagauge and look at the engine yep when it's so damn cold outside wishing it would warm up quicker.

    I just leave mine off. Don't display anything on it. It's almost horrible thinking about the kind of mileage I used to get on my little car. But I love my tundra!

    How do you get your temp to display...I have selected through the disp button on the steering wheel to find no temp. The only temp in my display is in the bottom right corner and is very small to read. However my manual show a picture of the display with the temp. Current model I'm driving is the 2015 Limited. Your help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Just a few, more to come
    Mostly AVG MPG, sometimes switching to instant MPG and the occasional temp check.

    I just keep hitting display until it comes up...there's an additional menu button somewhere in there if u hold it down that might display that option.

    The only temp I have is on the center steering wheel dash area ..where is the temp displaying on yours? Same area or deck?

    Heh...instant MPG. I watch it like a hawk and see 22-24 mpg...then I play with the radio for a few minutes or have a conversation with my wife or kids, and I look down and it's at 17mpg! Hehehehe... I guess since my '15 Honda Fit can get me 50mpg, it works out in the end.
