Hey guys, in the EF the trip comp shows innacurate readings..

For example sometimes cruising down the highway im apparently using 0l/100km, sometimes the range won't work after a fill up and the average speed doesn't work (cruising on hwy average 100 it will read roughly 50kms after being reset)..

Is there a common fault? And an easy fix..?

If your fuel guage works properly, i'd try another trip computer.
