Does anybody now if there is any significance to the kind of planets displayed and the order they show up. I have 4 planets and a sun on my display. Also, does anybody know why my mpg is less when the temp drops below 40.

You get a planet every 200 Eco points. No significance on the type or order.

Look for several threads here on winter gas millage. In short, it will go down. Main reasons; Engine runs more to warm up the car, winter blend gas, and gas less efficient when cold.

You eventually get a little mini earth looking planet in the lower corner of the display under the eco points number and the count resets back to zero.

It dropped to 30 deg here and I checked the tires as my wife was down to 32 mpg. I found that the tires had dropped from 34 psi to 30 psi so I put 40 psi in and she is now getting 37 mpg.

Do the tire pressure monitors have a problem with higher than speced pressures? I ran mine to 36 when the sensors came on this AM and didn't want to chance it until I checked here first.

The TPMS only comes on below 30 psi. Many members put max sidewall 44 psi to get the most mpg but it gets pretty bumpy.
