Default Diesel for econony?

Check this out. 318k on the clock so must have done a lot of idling or heavy towing. It's a 2008 NS auto.

Looks to me like the car has only just been started, as there is no history on the graph that will show up to the last 4 hours of running. If the car isn't run for over 3 hours, the graph clears the data.
I see this sort of info for the first few minutes after starting cold - looks normal to me.

Plus it wouldn’t use much fuel idling. I had a Fiesta ST for a while and maybe others do it too but when I parked it and let it idle the file consumption was so low it went from L per 100km to L per hour. From memory with the air con on, on a hot summer day, it was around 0.6L per hour. Nothing really. And it wasn’t coz it was particularly fuel economic. It wasn’t. At least maybe coz I drove it like I stole it which was what it was made for.

In my NT the graph only auto-ranges from 0-10 to 0-30. If the consumption "plot point" is more than 30l/100km then the point doesn't plot, and the range doesn't change.

Doing beach work, with a lot of 1st/2nd gear (high range) work and leaving the engine idling during recoveries / reconnaissance it's not unusual for my graph to look something like that - following hours of operation.

Totally meaningless photograph. Unless somebody is waiting for us to laugh at the radio being on Adelaide's 107.1? This makes me feel better about listening to 102.3.

Ah ok. Found this whilst browsing vehicles for sale and this was one of the photos. Thought it looked a bit off but the explanations make sense.

Yep, could have been after moving the car 50 metres and that's it.
Mine regularly reads 20 / 30 or more by the end of my street after a cold morning start.
