Fuel Consumption Reading

Just this past week, the reading display for the Gas consumption on my 2005 325xi, which used to show about 10.1 L/100km now all of a sudden shows 1.2 L/100km. WTF is going on? Anyone seen this happen before?

Well yesterday after I reset it, the lowest I was able to go was 9.6 L/100km, but I was driving on the highway from Oakville to Scarborough.

Can't believe just yesterday I clocked 200km for the day...
