I traded in a 2016 Ford Focus. I love the ride in the Encore in comparison. However, I cannot locate the Instant MPG gauge that I am accustomed to. Average MPG is not quick enough to set my speed for best MPG. If it does not have and Instant MPG, I am very disappointed.

2019 "Fuel Economy The center displays the approximate instantaneous fuel economy as a number and bar graph. Displayed above the bar graph is a running average of fuel economy for the most recently travelled selected distance. Displayed below the bar graph is the best average fuel economy that has been achieved for the selected distance. The selected distance is displayed at the top of the page as “last xxx mi/km”. Press SET/CLR to select the distance or reset best value." I cannot find it. Do all trim levels have it?

NO! My entry level does not. Bummer!

If you have the information screen there on the 19, it should be there, but it might be turned off in the list. You can select if that's available by using the menu button on the side of the left stick. There'll be a settings function there where you can check different info screens to be available. I think the fuel economy one was initially turned off in mine.

Solved! Dealer unchecked the Instant MPG.

I am loving this Encore! We leased a pair of them.

What do you mean "unchecked the Instant MPG"?

There is a Menu check off and "gas economy" was unchecked. I hoped that this thread will help another owner.

Glad to help. I have fun with it as I go up hills and coast to the top. Also, on the HWY I can choose the best speed for Max MPG. My wife and love the Encore for its smooth quiet ride and for the seat height getting in/out without contortion.

Be sure and sign up at fuelly and track your overall mileage too. It's interesting.
