Trip Computer Applying Miles to Kilometer Conversion


I have read a couple of posts with a few people reporting the same problem that I am experiencing and was wondering if anyone has a solution?

For some reason my trip computer applies the miles to kilometre conversion on the miles per gallon function making it seem like I am only doing 20mpg which was daunting until I noticed that the miles recorded was way down (worked out at about 62%). Does anyone know if there is a quick fix to this problem?

Surely that's a setting on the OBC? Under units IIRC

If you mean that it's actually miscalculating stuff, then that was a recall fault on early facelift 156s. It required the speedo to be replaced, and a lot (but not all?) didn't have the mileage changed - so now when you see used Alfas, a few say 'speedo replaced at 8000 miles so add this to the total'.

Probably a lot of threads about it on here.
