Default New Scion Owner - Confusted by dash readouts ?????

Just purchased a new to me 2009 Scion.

Do not understand the dash readout for MPG (not the average display but the real time display)....

While driving on the highway or in town the MPG jumps all over the place reading 47 mpg then 28, then 22 then 72 then 18 then 24, etc...etc...etc....

Is it broken or do I not understand what it is trying to do.....

Thanks....

Do you remember the mileage indicator on older cars? It ran of a vaccumm on the motor and when you gave the car gas it would move and show poor mileage. Kinda the same concept. Hope this helps.
