Something that you may not know is that DTE is based on your currently selected TRIP A or TRIP B and the values accumlated there.
For instance: I start my road trip I reset Trip A. DTE is now "gaining" as I accumlate miles.
Each time I refill the tank, I reset Trip B.
If I switch to Trip A after 200 miles have accumulated, it remains very accurate as it is measures the average MPG for the trip.
Switching back to Trip B, show the MPG for this tank. Useful if this particular leg is more mountain climbing, etc. The DTE will adjust based on which trip is selected and uses the average MPG to determine the value.
