Your Lottery Z06 Christmas Present

Tired of waiting and want a long shot to get your Z06? I have two friends who between them have won three new Corvettes. Is this your Christmas self-present? https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...iversary-coupe. Might you be the third friend who wins a Corvette lottery by buying just one ticket? Of course still going to be many months until you are driving it, but if you win a heck of lot cheaper than your/my other plan.

  • Trip meter surprise

    Until yesterday, I had never reset Trip Meter 2. It showed total miles (handy, since the track mode display doesn't include an odometer), avg speed since new, and avg MPG since new. I looked at it a few days ago, and it said 9999.9 miles. Cool I thought, it's about to turn over to 0 when I hit 10,000 miles. It...... never changed.

    I switched the mode to Tour, and saw my ODO was at 10,007. Trip 2 still shows 9999.9. Apparently, when the trip meter maxes out, it just.... stops. I left it there for a couple of days, and nothing changed. Not avg mpg, not avg speed. This seems pretty odd. Every other car I've had the trip meter cycles to zero and continues recording. I was kind of hoping to get lifetime mpg displayed there as I continue to rack up miles, but that's not possible. There's a lifetime fuel usage display, so I can still calculate the number, but it really seems odd to just freeze the trip meter.

    The programmers had a bad day. GM should make an OTA update to correct this. Maybe nobody made them aware until now?

      Well, it is a trip meter, designed to record data between fill ups. They probably thought 9999.9 was plenty since the C8 would take several tanks of gas to get there, and many meters get to 10K without being reset.

        Interesting. Ive never reset either of my trips and I just rolled over 10K couple days ago. Now I have to go look!

          I don't know that it's designed to record "distance between fill ups." It's designed to record whatever the owner considers a "trip." If I want to keep track of mileage for a trip cross country and back, that's a lot more than one fill up. Yes, 10K is probably enough for most "trips," but shouldn't I get to define a trip, rather than GM? Like I said, every other car I've owned with a trip computer lets me decide when to end it.

            Seems odd they would do that.

            Even my Silverado goes over 9999.9. Trip 2 is currently at 28,xxx since I've never reset it.

                Same thing happened to me @10k miles, I enjoyed checking my lifetime mpg. I was bummed, but 6K miles later I enjoy seeing my new stats. My 10k’s miles are more spirited. Can’t wait for the 20k’s ✌️

                  That is a bummer. I usually keep Trip 2 as “lifetime” numbers and I reset Trip 1 every time I fill up. I too just rolled over 10,000 miles, yesterday in fact. I haven’t looked at Trip 2 since yesterday though. I’ll try to remember to check it next time I’m out for a drive.

                    I keep trip 1 for between fill ups. I use Trip 2 for between oil changes.

                      I did the same thing only I used trip 1 for "lifetime" and trip two for the duration of each road trip.

                      But, after filling up to go on a 2.5k mile road trip, I accidentally reset trip 1 and lost my "lifetime" info and was frustrated I did that. The car had about 9k miles when I did the reset.

                      Now I'm not so frustrated since it looks like it wouldn't have mattered.

                        I just let the OLM keep track of oil changes. Mileage really doesn't tell me much given I'm always due for a change before 7500 miles.

                          Yup. Checked mine today. Stuck at 9,999.9. I wonder if an OTA update (if GM even does one) will restore the total trip miles?
