I have had vehicles with avg speed on the trip computer for years. 60 mph is way high unless you drive only open interstate and stop at the first fuel station at every fuel stop. My commute is 20 miles of interstate (75 mph) and 12 more of 60mph road with three traffic lights where I rarely would sit more than one light cycle. I consistently would have 37 or 38 mph on that display. Even if I reset it on a highway trip of 1000 miles I would get home and it would be 44 mph with fuel stops, short dinner runs, etc and the bulk at 70-75 mph. It is very much possible that it has 2084 hours at avg of 33 mph plus the idle time. Remote start and someone that thinks a diesel engine is supposed to run all the time could get you the 300 plus idle hours. If you look at 1720 hours moving then the avg speed is 40 mph range. The idle count likely would include coasting and not just stationary idle. It all looks good and is inline as far as I can tell. I checked my 2006 that has hour count only. This trucked is not idled much and is not used for commutes. It hauls horses or hay or a tractor down the highway and it has averaged 38.2 mph over its nearly 135000 miles using hour count as divisor for that milage
