Default EV switch & MPG readout

I have had a Coastal EV switch installed (this is the one that is activated by pulling on the cruse control lever) on my 06 #3 for about 17,000 miles. A far as I can determine, my MPG readout has not reset when filling up since it was installed. Donít get me wrong, I like that it doesnít reset because as long as I donít reset it, my readout is average for the life of the car. I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this with there Prius? Except for intermittent response in the winter, the EV switch has been working just as one would expect. Just curious!

By the way, donít touch your screen because I have a terrible cold and wouldnít want you to catch it.

The Coastal mod has nothing to do with the consumption screen reset.
Toyota changed how the screen resets automatically for 2006+, as you discovered.
