Average Speed?

Asked by May 13, 2016 at 04:45 PM about the 2016 Nissan Sentra SV

Question type: General

I have a Nissan sentra 2016 and would like to know how it
calculates average speed. Does it factor in time sitting
while the car is running or only when it's moving?

I could be wrong on this I'll double check with a Nissian engineer next week. It should be based on wheel rotation (motion only) not time / hours of engine run time.

Zero mph and time are not a factor.

Thanks guys, if you could verify that for me I'd love to know for sure. Unless you're absolutely certain and no checking is needed.

If time where a factor, it would read the number of hrs. the car is turned on. Moving at 0 mph X any number = 0. Doubt 0 mph could be a average speed, unless it is a show car.
