'03 300m - overhead console doesn't display real-time MPG ?

    First thing I noticed about my "new" 2003 300m - I couldn't get the overhead console to display real-time MPG. It displays Avg MPG (like my '00 does) but I kept scrolling through the display and didn't see a real-time MPG display. What's up with that?

    Not sure when, but they did stop showing instantaneous MPG in the display. So it’s possible it’s not there.

    The last vehicle I had that displayed instantaneous mpg was a 2000 T&C Ltd. Valiant is correct. It was removed in subsequent model years though I'm not quite sure when.

    The newer 200 and 300 have both instantaneous and average mpg displayed in the instrument cluster on a graph. I can imagine that some owners may have become obsessed and nit-picky with instantaneous MPG readings, so automakers reverted to average MPG readings which are more accurate.
    The instant reading is the arch. The average reading is the number displayed.
