    I tried search, but apologies if I've missed this (as I suspect I have).

    Just bought a 2012 Prius Three last Friday. The MFD (upper display) shows an average of about 53 mpg so far, and the corresponding 1 & 5 min bars seem to make sense (we have an 07 TCH so we're reasonably familiar).

    But the Display Audio unit (6.1 inch) Car>Consumption graph seems to show 100mpg most of the time/most bars. That can't be right and it looks nothing like the MFD display. What am I missing?

    Unfortunately the display doesn't match the manual I got with the car.

    You're referring to the bar chart display? Check the intervals. You're probably looking at 5-minute intervals, so if you were most/all electric for the past 30 minutes or so, most of the bars will be 100 MPG bars.
