I don't miss the analog gauge enough to do anything about it. The digital gauge does allow for interesting info bites like current consumption, average etc. which I think is great.
I am getting way better fuel economy on this car than any that came before. During the winter months I was averaging 6.2 l/100km. The rest of the year i am getting 5.3 l/100km. On a highway trip with a little running around town I am getting 4.7 l/100km. This is doing about 85 kmh and slowing to 60 kmh for small towns.
