By now I'm used to having an "avg mpg / current mpg" display in some of the cars I've driven.
I'd really like the same for the Volt (and as this is a software change, I'd like it for my 2012 Volt, thank you!).
As it stands, the fuzzy green and blue ball and other such displays are all frustratingly vague. I'd like something more instantaneous and more specific (just tell me the watts being used for gosh sake!)
To be specific, one one of the displays I'd like to see the current power consumption (averaged over no more than a few seconds) and an averaged power consumption (from a time a user resets the counter or from the last charge, or trip, but more like hours and days than seconds).
I like the idea of tying in the consumption to two trip counters.
What should the unit be? watts / mile? miles per kilowatt? That's not so important to me as long as one of the two numbers updates frequently enough to help me tweak my driving for the maximum range.
