What's the Blue Bar all about ?

I've just bought a 2018 Civic and so far so good, but some of the bells and whistles have me beat, one in particular...

What's that Blue Bar in the instrument panel, it's calibrated 0 / 40 / 80 but I can't figure out what it's measuring, nor can I find it in the 820 page manual
so I'd appreciate it if someone would explain what it's all about.

Thanks,

Bob.

Right, thanks for that, couldn't find it in the Manual, I'll look again, it's a fairly erratic bar, can it be turned off, after all the Average MPG is displayed,
seems to be one bar too far, but Thanks for the explanation, it's appreciated...

It cant be turned off. It shows the instant mpg based on current driving conditions. The mpg on the headunit info screen shows mpg based on trip meter.

RTFM. It's all there. Page 158 in mine, and the one that you are talking about is the top left of the pics.
Yes you can select about 15 different things to display in that 'window' some a lot more useful than others.
If you look closely, the bar is not erratic, but will go towards zero when you put your foot down and towards the high end when you lift off.

Thanks for the insight, appreciated, at 820 pages it's one hell of a Manual to wade through...

Bob.

Yep, your'e telling me. Especially as it has quite large repeated (almost) stuff for Type R.
I have sellotaped those bits off in mine so as not to know what I am missing .
