Gotta love a bit of Jurassic Park! 3D should make it good too.  Closest we'll ever come to seeing a real dinosaur, unless somehow they find a way to bring them back to life like they did in that film years ago.

That will be the live mpg which shows the current fuel consumption so it does vary a lot.  If you're not touching the accelerator while moving it will show 99.9 as no fuel is being used, and when accelerating it will drop to around 10 or less.  You should also have an average mpg setting in the trip computer which shows the average since it was last reset.  The only real use I find for the live mpg is to see how low I can get it :D.

The esp light on mine (the one which stays illuminated in sport mode or off) flashes whenever the wheels start to slip, even if it only happens for a fraction of a second.  The light actually stays on (or flashes, can't remember) for a short while afterwards too, certainly beyond the point when they've regained grip.  They do spin up a bit, but you can tell the engine has cut power as the revs don't increase any more if you keep your foot down.  With it turned off in mine (I've only tried this once uphill in the wet) they spin a lot faster once they lose grip, so the effects are certainly noticeable.

 

Can you feel any difference at all with it on or off?  Does the engine hold back at all or does it just rev up easily once the wheels start spinning?

 

Edit: post number 1111!
