To check the mileage on a Chevy Silverado, you can use the vehicle’s onboard computer and display system, which provides real-time information about your vehicle’s fuel efficiency and trip-related data. Here’s how to check the mileage on a Chevy Silverado:

Note: The following steps are a general guide and may vary slightly depending on the model year and trim level of your Chevy Silverado.

  1. Start the Vehicle:
    • Enter your Chevy Silverado and start the engine. Ensure that the vehicle is in “Run” mode.
  2. Access the Display:
    • On the dashboard or center console of your Chevy Silverado, there should be a digital display screen. This screen may be part of the instrument cluster or located separately on the dashboard.
  3. Navigate to the Mileage Information:
    • Use the controls on your Chevy’s steering wheel or center console to navigate to the mileage information screen. The exact button or combination of buttons can vary depending on your Chevy Silverado’s model and year. Look for buttons with symbols like “MENU,” “OK,” or arrows.
  4. Select the Trip or Mileage Display:
    • Once you’ve accessed the menu, look for options related to trip information or mileage. You may need to cycle through different screens or menus to find this information.
  5. View the Mileage:
    • On the mileage or trip information screen, you should see various details, including:
      • Total mileage (the overall distance the vehicle has traveled).
      • Trip mileage (the distance traveled since you last reset the trip counter).
      • Average fuel efficiency (miles per gallon or liters per 100 kilometers).
      • Range (an estimate of how far you can drive with the current fuel level).
      • Instantaneous fuel efficiency (real-time MPG or L/100km).
  6. Reset the Trip Counter (Optional):
    • If you want to measure the mileage for a specific trip or period, you can reset the trip counter by selecting the appropriate option in the menu. This will start tracking the distance for the new trip.
  7. Exit the Display:
    • Once you’ve checked the mileage or trip information, exit the display screen to return to the main dashboard view or navigation screen.

Please note that the specific steps and options may vary depending on your Chevy Silverado’s model year and trim level. Consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual for detailed instructions tailored to your specific Chevy Silverado model. Additionally, some Chevy Silverado models may offer more advanced digital displays and features, so refer to the manual for guidance on using those features as well.
