You can look in the cluster data and get the mileage that way, but if it was overridden it may show what the odo shows.

Check the hours. Figure out what average miles/hour are. If it is under around 30 miles per hour I would be leary.


From what I understand there are other ways to compare milage with the odometer, although I have yet to see it be done.

Yes with a Tech II ......
Like mentioned "hours" cannot be over ridden ..... If you don't have access to a Tech II bring it to the dealer .....

We know what this is really about you sly dog !!!!!

LOL @ Mac. I just checked mine and after 8717 miles I am at 289 hours. That's just a hair over 30 miles per hour. I guess I am an old grandma???
I do Lots of short trips and also have a remote start. I would say this is one of the lower ones you will see. Edited by: Max Power

Nope! I'm at 25.xx. I can give you a spreadsheet of every tank, miles and hours. I range from 10 (in the shop) up to 60 on different tanks, but lifetime bounces between 25 adn 26.
I guess I need to get a SMACK DOWN bumper to get to and from work to improve my MPH.
