    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to change the speedo to KPH? I'm going to France on Friday and that would be really handy. I will obviously need to change it back to MPH when I get back.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, it worked.

    For anyone else reading, you hold down all 3 buttons and then when a number comes up, use the scroll button to select the right number and then hit set.

    The numbers represent:

    1 - Euro kph
    2 - UK mph /mpg
    3 - US mph /gallons

    not sure if a US gallon is different from a UK one or if they don't use mpg (my dealer told me but didn't know the difference).
     
  6. Yes, a US gallon is only 6 pints, so you get less mpg. Something to do with the measurements having been set in the time of Queen Anne,though why there different, I don't know. I'm sure there some history buff out there who tell us!Useful info on changing to kph though.Does it give fuel consumption in litres per 100kms?
     
  7. There's a DaytonaBuff, but he knows bog all about history. :lol: Cheers for the info on MPH-KPH though!
