How To Tell If A Vehicle Has Active Fuel Management?

Observing the indicator on the MPG DIC (Driver Information Center) screen is one of the most reliable ways to determine if a car has active fuel management. This icon changes based on whether or not the active fuel management is active.

When the active fuel management is active, a V4 icon will appear on the display. This shows that the car is operating in four-cylinder mode, thereby conserving gasoline by operating with fewer cylinders. In contrast, when the active fuel management is deactivated, a V8 icon will appear on the screen. This shows that the car is operating in eight-cylinder mode, allowing it to create more power at the expense of increased fuel consumption.

In addition to examining the indicator on the MPG DIC panel, it is also feasible to determine whether or not a vehicle has active fuel management by analyzing its performance. When the active fuel management system is engaged, the vehicle will be more fuel-efficient, resulting in improved fuel economy. When the active fuel management system is deactivated, the car will have higher power but burn more fuel.

The best approach to determine whether a car has active fuel management is to observe the icon on the MPG DIC display. If active fuel management is active, a V4 icon will appear on the screen. In contrast, if the active fuel management is deactivated, a V8 icon will appear on the screen. In addition, you can evaluate the vehicle’s performance to determine whether or not the active fuel management is engaged.
