I corrected the speedo a while ago, but I thought that the ECM knew the precise fuel consumption by using injector size and time?

But it needs to be calibrated, mine was way off as delivered. I corrected the speedo VSS first and then dealt with trip center. In "Trip Center" you enter correction factors. It was showing I'd used ~ 2.5 gal when I was putting in 3.0. I ended up with a 1.18 "fuel used" correction factor so what it shows for "fuel used" matches what I put in. I'd reset the trip meter then run 3 or 4 tanks of gas recording how much I put in, 10+ gal with my 4.5 gal tank, and would then apply a correction and check again and correct again. It took a while. Now it's dead on, it was worth doing.

It's handy runnin' down the road, being able to watch "trip econ (mpg)" and have a good idea how far I can stretch fuel stops.
