    How to display Fuel Consumption "Since Refuelling" instead of "Since Start"

    on my B8 Passat with the Digital instrument cluster, when I have the navigation view set, the fuel consumption displayed on the left round rev circle is "Since Start" and I want to change it to "Since Refuelling" (first picture)

    If I change my view from navigation to Driving Data (second picture), I can switch the fuel consumption by pressing the OK button on the steering wheel to display between "Since Start", "Since Refuelling" and "Long Term", but what I really want is to use the Navigation View with the Since Refuelling Fuel Consumption

    It seems like this is not configurable via Menus, thus an adaptation or long coding should be needed


    Thanks

    Not possible to my knowledge.
    The developers probably thought that in Navigation view you most likely have an active route and want to know how much fuel consumption you needed for this route.

    thanks, but do you think this is hard coded?
    I don't expect it to be Menu driven where you can select between the 3 settings, but I would guess somewhere in adaptations we could change it.
    Now a days it is very rare that developers hard code stuff
    The problem is where to find this...

    I guess this does not apply to automotive development.
    There might be a way to change this, but not inside coding nor adaption, at least from my experience. If it can be changed, then either by parameters or by firmware modification. Both of those are not possible using VCDS, though.
