Question DTE - Distance to empty...and the hours?

I get the DTE display, it's pretty accurate for me...but what is the Hour display used for? Is that hours it's ran since fill up or hours (as opposed to distance) or number of hrs until I am stranded on the side of the road? I literally just found that button on the dash and was click happy.

i assumed people would use it to see how long they've been on a trail or back road when they are only going like 2-5mph

I'm pretty sure it's an engine time but could be wrong.

I've used the 'hour meter' a few times as an on-a-trip device to help track time en route. Still not sure of all its features. If you don't reset it, it runs thru and keeps ticking away.

Guess I'll have to read up on it finally.

I didn't even know it reset! Apparently I need to read up on it too! Trying to gauge how many times I need to fill up on my trip. Whatever helps!

I just started to reset it at service time to see how many hours on the engine that there is between PMs. I believe it keeps count of engine run time. Not absolutely certain though.

Elapsed Time (ET)

This display shows the accumulated ignition ON time since the last reset.

So, ignition on pretty much equals engine on? Unless you stall it?

Ummm, I'll be the idiot I guess. How do you reset it? Can you reset other things over there, like Avg MPG and what not, or how do those reset?

As far as the Elapsed Time, maybe try and hold in the button for a few seconds?

That's what resets trip A/B on the other side.

I'm pretty sire its hours running. I use it between oil changes. See how long its been running. You really only need it if you have the engine running just sitting there for a long period of time.

Yep, just had a PM done today and reset mine. Get the display to show the time. While displaying the time push the button and hold until the display goes to zero.....you have successfully reset the timer.
