Hi,

Is it possible to change a European vehicle from Imperial to U.S. units of measure? There doesen't seem to be a setting for this in the user menu, unless it's hidden. Any ideas where the setting can be changed?

My '03 E220 CDI has always indicated higher mileage than what I have measured. It routinely shows 50-54 MPG and I measure a respectable 37-40 MPG. The car was originally delivered in Belgium then imported to the U.S. I have set the language and the units to English but it occurs to me that an Imperial and a U.S. gallon differ by about 20%, which corresponds nicely to the MPG error that I measure.

I'll be interested to hear your comments. TIA

Cheers from the states. Visit Florida, USA!

Star can change things like this through national coding.

The consumption figures can also be adjusted using a correction factor if the above is not your issue.

Thanks for your note V12. I'll ask the guys at MB shop to put it on STAR next time I'm over there.
