Trip computer acting up

Drove a couple of hundred miles over the last few days and got a strange reading on the trip computer. Look at the attached pictures.
In the first picture it says distance to empty is 79 miles although the gas tank is just below half tank. Second picture is after driving another 43 miles and now it says distance to empty 75 miles. Average mpg (third picture) according to trip computer was 23.0 mpg the entire time :confused:

I'm trying to think of other factors that would affect the mileage you should get. If your MPG fluctuates that would have an affect. Other than that, it could just be that the system that estimates for you is not very accurate.

Maybe the computer calculates based on the vehicles average MPG instead of just your trip's. These could be quite different.
