Default Reset average gas mileage counter

We have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad-Cab with a 4.7 engine. The average gas mileage counter in the overhead display has not changed in the last 6 or 7 months. I would like to reset it. How do you do that?
Thanks!

I don't know if yours is like my '06. You would have to hold down the reset for a couple seconds.

In my 01, hold down both buttons until cleared. Also clears/resets everything when they are held down.

If you are resetting the avg mpg, I would also reset the trip odometer on the overhead display as well. Reset them by just pressing the reset button on the left side. On my '02 I don't need to hold it down, just press it and it resets.

Mine too, I just press it and it resets. I guess it stays on for so long and takes the average from 20 mins. of driving or so. Havent really figured out how it finally gets the average and stops counting or whatever, im just guessing on 20 minutes, time might have nothing to do with it. Maybe miles?

I have noticed a small change in my avg. economy over the course of a few weeks and changing weather. It is just not sensitive to anything! I took a 4hr drive to Iowa, and it hardly budged! I have to bring up avg. econ. on the screen and hit reset and its blank. Or a global reset I hold reset for like 3 seconds. I have a 2002 Ram Sport if it matters by year.
