I have just bought a (used) Octavia II 62reg CR SE 1.6 TDI. This trim level has the maxidot display (verified by opening door as suggested in forums), bolero radio and bluetooth connectivity.
My problem is that the maxidot screen only shows phone connectivity status/options and car image when a door is open. The controls for the maxidot in this octavia are the buttons on the windscreen wiper stalk.
When I hit reserve fuel, my mileage range pops up on the maxidot for a few seconds, likewise when the outside temparature drops below 4oC I get an ice warning.
I would like to know if I can scroll between the range/MPG/other options as the main display on the maxidot (as other octavias (and golfs) I have been in, do).
I have attached some images of the options I get on my display below.
As this is my first skoda, I am new to this forum - I have searched and scrolled through to see if my problem has already been mentioned, but I have been unable to find anyone with exactly the same problem as me (Although a few similar problems). If I have missed this please let me know!
As you may know, there was a trip computer (TC-6 and TC-6P) made specifically for Skoda Felicia 1.3 and 1.6. According to user manual, the fuel consumption of a Felicia 1.3 warmed-up engine at idle is 0.8 liter/hour.
What do you think of that value? To me that looks way too low. Do you have any measured data?
I am in Belgium for 3 years and my car UK. Can the MFD be coded or what ever it needs to display the maxi dot in the centre with speed in kmh from the computer?
I realise there is the small one in bottom centre but very hard to read quickly.
I have done a little over one thousand miles in my 2.0 diesel DSG and thought I would give the car a proper MPG test. I filled the car and drove steadily from South Yorkshire to Whitby and back via Scarborough and filled the car again on arriving home. The computer told me I had averaged 59 MPG for the journey, after filling the car up I calculated the MPG based on the amount of diesel used and the true figure was 50 MPG.
A big difference, the computer claims 20% better than real MPG. My real MPG is decent but I am surprised by how far out the computer is, most of my other cars have been very accurate or within 5%.
How do your computer figures compare to reality?
