Default Instant MPG

So how low a number have you guys seen on your Instant MPG?
I did a rapid start from a stop sign today and saw 4 mpg, but it was far from full throttle.
I would think 3 mpg is possible but has anybody seen 1 or 2?

I've seen as low as 0 MPG on my Aurora instant while under WOT. Usually the lowest it goes during acceleration (normal, slow acceleration) is around 14 MPG instant.

Well, no one'* going to beat zero.
It gives me something to shoot for since I just passed the 500 mile mark on the way home today.
WOT is just a matter of time.

Yeah, you've gotta break that baby in soon. I've hit 0 on several occasions also, and my usual instant reading is 11-13 during regular acceleration.

Well, I hit 70 mpg on the instant mpg readout yesterday......as I coasted back down from 120 mph.
The GXP is also surprisingly well-mannered at the higher speeds.
