You have an interesting odometer... unique in the automotive industry where the odometer is the LEGAL basis for determining a vehicle's mileage... NOT "stoppage."

The odometer doesn't measure how far you drive it measures how far your engine has been running. Even stopped, the odometer still ticks up but super slowly because the engine is still running and thus still being measured. Test it out. Leave your car running but not moving for a few minutes and you will find the odometer still moving.

That is total bs. Of course it measures how far the car has been driven. How can you measure how "far" an engine has been running LOL. Hope no one wastes the gas "testing" that. I think that comment of yours deserves its own FML

It's as if this person doesn't even know what the odometer is... It's the little thing with the rotating (or digital) numbers that measure how far your vehicle has traveled, not how long the engine has been running. Rpm is not the same thing as speed so running the odometer directly off the engine would just be idiotic.

Just to add to 89, A digital odometer runs off of input from the transmission. A saw toothed gear/wheel generates a pulse to the odometer each time it turns a certain amount. Each pulse translates into a certain distance traveled. Therefore, no input from the transmission =no movement of the car = no output from the odometer.


82 are you dense? The odometer tells you the distance the care has been moved. Shit just Google what it does the first thing that comes up is "An odometer or odograph is an instrument that indicates distance traveled by a vehicle, such as a bicycle or automobile. The device may be electronic, mechanical, or a combination of the two." see? DISTANCE OF VEHICLE not distance the engine has ran or whatever the hell you tried saying.
