to the poster who showed their dash display -

how did you get the display in metric and imperial at the same time?

mpg and degrees celcius simultaneously.

I only get L/100km.

My best running average reading is 9.0L/km on a road trip in summer. Normally, when cruising steady at 70mph, I can get 28mpg (imperial). But around town, it's in the mid-teens.

Recode the instruments via VAG-COM to include Land = United Kingdom (see openobd.org for what the coding is). That'll give you Celsius and Miles/Imperial Gallon, as the poster pointed out.

If you're showing celcius and L/100 km, yours is probaly set to Europe.
