How To Fix DRL (CAN Maximas)
http://forums.maxima.org/5th-generat...eshooting.html

The PROPER way to calculate MPG is:

1. Fill tank completely
2. Reset speedo
3. Drive as far as you feel like, doesn't matter much
4. Re-fill your tank completely
5. Record miles driven between #2 and #4
6. Record Gallons you put in tank at #4
7. Divide Mile reading you got at #5 by Gallon reading you got at #6

EXAMPLE:

1. Fill tank completely done
2. Reset speedo 0 miles
3. Drive as far as you feel like, doesn't matter much 200 miles
4. Re-fill your tank completely done
5. Record miles driven between #2 and #4 200 miles
6. Record Gallons you put in tank at #4 8 Gallons
7. Divide Mile reading you got at #5 by Gallon reading you got at #6 200 Miles / 8 Gallons = 25 MPG

This is why these threads fail, no one has a bloody clue how to calculate their mileage, and everyone throws out numbers.
