Here's a quick tip no matter how you use them: turn the dial to something else when you bring it through the full service car wash (the kind with real people to vacuum, towel dry, and clean the inside of the car.) Earlier this week I noticed a few miles later that they had reset the trip meter. By accident I'm sure. Good thing I wasn't really tracking anything on it! Same advice probably applies for valet parking!
Since the Volt's engine doesn't have much to do with mileage (if most miles are EV), it keeps seperate track of oil life. In addition to odo A and odo B there's a select for percent of oil life left.I don't have my Volt yet, but on my car now I use one for oil changes and one for gas fillups.
To put it simply, both Trip A and Trip B are ALWAYS counting up. The only way to change that is by resetting one. If you reset B, A will still be counting just fine, and vice versa.I have two questions. The manual is not too clear on this.
If I use A for lifetime, when I switch to B for a trip, does A continue to accumulate miles etc?
Can I reset B without disturbing A, and how should I do that?
I do not want to experiment, since I don't want to risk loseing data in A.
