You could try to set a maximum for the values in the rrd files with

     "rrdtool tune <rrdfile> -a ds0:<max> -a ds1:<max>"

<max> should be the maximum value possible for the interface. Look into
the mrtg documentation about "MaxBytes[..]". It is not sufficient to set
"maxbytes" in the config file as mrtg currently does not copy this
values into the rrd files.

["rrdtool dump" + "rrdtool restore" provide a possibility to remove spikes
 from a rrd file. Check it's documentation]

If this does not help please send me your config file (one target should
be enough, with the global settings) and a "wrong" graph.
