Just sat here thinking about my holidays and come up with this one: when I get off the boat I'll be changing the headlights and the dash to kilometres, does it change the mpg to kilometers per gallon at the same time?

Just my opinion, I wouldn't think so. The continental calculation is different, it's the opposite of the UK measurement. Whereas we work on how far we can go for a fixed amount of fuel, they calculate how little fuel they use for a fixed distance. Thus the alternative to miles per single gallon, is actually litres per 100 kilometres.

I believe it leaves consumption in units you understand.

Just gone and had a play with settings, and answering my own question, there are separate settings for mph/kph and fuel mpg/lpk and there's 2 settings for the litre side
In other words you can have kph and mpg or vice a verse

Hi Miket, I've always wondered if you can change the headlight settings and speedometer settings etc from the infotainment system...? I too am venturing over the water to Wolfsburg infact in the next couple of weeks.

Hi,
I leave soon for a 2 & half week trip to visit the relatives in Sicily (3000+ miles return trip) and I pondered the same question and also had a play with the settings. I thought the circular 'speedo' would change to km/hr but it's just the centre part of the display when speed is selected that is displayed in km/hr. Just wondered if anyone else has managed to change the whole dial to display in km/hr?
Thanks

When I had a play I thought the speedo was not changing but the only difference you see it the mph to kph lettering at the bottom of the speedo change, I assume the digital speed readout changes also
There's also separate settings for mpg to ltrs and on my car to change the headlights from left to right but I have the adaptive LED's headlights
