Since my latest software updates, my mpg meter gauge (above my speed display) now pegs full yellow lights when I am idling while stopped....I can’t get a negative mpg readout this great unless I really stomp on the gas....could this mpg meter really be accurately representing the gas consumed while idling?!

It is reallly killing my avg mpg calculations!!

Thanks folks!

That's normal behavior. When you are sitting there idling, you are getting zero miles per gallon and the computer is going to reflect that in its calculations. The display you refer to shows fuel economy performance relative to the current average...if it's "instantaneously" above the current calculated average, it will be on the green (right) side. If it's less than the current calculated average, it will be on the yellow side. Not moving...is definitely less than the current calculated average about as bad as you can get. ;)
