*sigh*

So I have one set for the total mileage for the car and one set for how much I have driven the car. Today, while driving back from my parents, a 123.4(LOL) mile trip the trip meters reset without me doing anything to them. The funny thing is that they are still at the same difference as they were before the reset, 8 miles.

Any one else have this?

I've had something similar happen to me twice so far in my 2017.

I was keeping Trip A as a total miles with avg MPG, and basically never resetting it, and using Trip B for each tank of gas (with my commute I'm basically getting 1100 - 1400 miles between having to fill up. 16,000 on my odometer so far.

Not really sure what to make of it, or really worry about it. My 2017 has had more than it's fair share of problems so I don't sweat the small stuff.

Not the end of the world. Although I do the same thing and have never touched my trip A, and have yet to lose my trip A, I view this to be the same as if Microsoft outlook loses its brains and destroys my PST file (my blasted year of Dell, I went back to Mac) . It was nice while it lasted to have every single email archived, but since I hardly ever have a need to go back and retrieve something, I should be less anal and just move on.

Given that, I think should go out and manually reset both of them to get it over with.

I used to track my mileage at every fillup in a spreadsheet, and at the 2 year mark decided to quit cold turkey and just drive. Life is too short to sweat some of this small stuff. Go smell some roses, write a song, switch your mutual funds around in your 401k. You'll be OK that your odometer reset.
