Actia Avg Fuel Mileage Reset

Has anyone figured out how to reset the average fuel mileage on the Actia LCD readout? I know how to reset the T1 and T2 mileage, and get to the display options, but nothing on the AVG Fuel Mileage reset. Any suggestions appreciated.

I am not real sure about this but it may have to be reset by Cummins Dealer.

This is the best set of instructions I could find for Actia gauges, although not for RV's.

It looks like if you highlight the average fuel mileage figure in the diagnostic mode, you might be able to use one of the buttons to set it. I might give it a try when I get a chance. There is also a good chance that it is just reading it from the engine computer.

Don't have the answer but I've been wondering the same thing. I fiddled with it a lot with no success. (Fiddling is a technical term that EngineerMike can explain). Inquiring minds want to know.

Fiddling: attempting to WRV (pronounced werv) the snot out of something, such that if everything goes wrong perfectly, your vehicle has to go to a proper service facility where proper technicians can marvel at the damage a big kid can do to a really big toy.

"...it may have to be reset by Cummins Dealer." I don't think it gets mileage from the engine's computer, since my Actia mileage keeps going up. UIMMG, Cummins should know better than 12.5 mpg. It started around 9 when I first got it.

Unless I Miss My Guess

My actual is 7.9 based on filling the tank & clocking mileage, so even the 9 was high when the coach had 850 miles.
