MPG meter drops to 0 sometimes?

Hey all,

Not a major problem ( I don't think) but my mpg meter will sometimes drop to 0, even when just touching the throttle to maintain speed. One day it'll sit showing six lights and 100mpg, and the next day same road same throttle position to keep the car plodding along and its showing 0mpg with 0 green eco lights lit?

Anyone help?

Mine does this sometimes when I'm really light on the pedal; I always figured it was my tiny input causing a bit of confusion to the MPG calculator... as if I press just a little bit more it figures it out.

Noticed this too, usually on a downhill road I find. I just take my foot of the accelerator for a few seconds and the MPG is back up again.
