Tough week for mpg. The lane closing on the bridge is really really hurting. I loose around 4mpg on that alone. Probably a 2 mpg impact on the tank average. Add to that the little bump stop fell of my brake light switch, causeing my brake lights to stay on and the TCC not to lock and I couldn't lean burn for that commute home.

Pretty normal week with some bad traffic here and there. This should represent what the rest of the summer mpg's should look like. I've just realized two things. My Friday drive home from work is costing me 1-2mpg on the tank average becaue of shore traffic and I can cruise at 35mph and get 90mpg

Could have been better than this but...some tough traffic this week and one day without lean burn so I could get the cars state inspection done. However I was spared the mess on Friday. Construction has started on the main bridge I use, they will be redecking it for the next three years This will have a big impact by having at least one lane closed for the next few years. Currently they have one lane closed after the bridge, but none on the bridge yet. This will be difficult to manage...
This was the first tank with the radiator ducted through the grill block. This has been very successfull at keeping the engine and trans temps in check without running the fan constantly. It was into the 100's this week also

Pretty good tank! Not an uderfill. This is what a week without traffic issues is like Most every commute was high 50's or low 60's on the SG, which isn't really that close. Nice hot weather 70's in the mornings and 90's in the afternoon's. I don't expect too many tanks like this because it was a short week, had Monday off and took off Friday, which are the two most difficult days to travel. Hope this get's me over 100%

Kinda of a bummer of tank, but still very good. I was sick Mon and Tues, which are the normally the two best days of commuting and were I pack on the big mpg numbers because Thur and Fri are always very challenging. So I only had the challenging days on this tank. We'll see how the next tank goes. SG said 53.6mpg, 5.3gal, and 274 miles. ODO said 284.3 X 4.36% = 271.9 miles

The best tank yet! It may be an underfill, the next tank will even it out though. I'm pretty excited with this result. It was nice and warm all week and traffic was pretty good. I hope I can do this all summer SG said 56.6 mpg, 8.3 gallons, and 468 miles. ODO said 485.6 x 4.36% = 464.5

Should have been a really good week because of warm weather and good traffic, but had a "Perfect Strom Traffic Day" Two big accidents, one disabled vehicle and a Phillies Game, probably lost 3 mpg from this Anyway, still pretty good.

Short tank cause I was on a buisness trip. This was a Wed-Fri tank, the hardest days. One day was rainy, the other two were some 60 degree weather, but had traffic all three days. SG said 51.0mpg and 5.4 gal at 274 miles. ODO said 284.7 x 4.36% = 272.3

Not a very good week for mpg, lots of traffic, rain, wind, cold temps, etc... Also went drag racing. I got $20 of race gas at the track, approximatly 1.81 gallons, which I added to the 9.090 I got at the gas station, that adds up to 10.90 gallons used to go 480.3 X 4.36% = 459.4 miles SG said 462 miles, 45.9mpg and 10.1 gallons. I should be back in the swing next week. BTW, got my best time ever at 15.341 @ 90.19mph, yeh!

Filled up on 93oct so I could go drag racing this coming weekend. So the next tank will be inconsistant. Weather is getting warmer and things are looking good.

Definatly a underfill this time, the gas gauge didn't even reach the F. Had to fill at a station near work today. SG said 46.7 mpg and 9.8 gallons and 458 miles. Dash said 474.8 x 4.36% = 454.1 miles actual. This was a difficult week for mpg, I drove a bunch more city than normal and had some real rough weather and cold temps and high winds. If it weren't for the underfill, it would not have been to good of a week.

It was a tough week for good mpg, snow, wind and rain throughout, never the less, the mpg should have been better than this. I need to get the MPGuino hooked up to get consistant readings.

A decent week for mpg, got some great and not so great commutes. SG said 46.9mpg and 9.8 gallons and 460 miles. ODO said 477.8 x 4.36% = 20.8 so 457 miles. Next week is supposed to be warm, above freezing and I will be switching back to the cheaper gas station. I'm not sure if I saw a benefit from running this gas, and the warmer weather may not reveal it...

SG said 45.2 mpg 10.0 gallons and 454miles. ODO said 471.3 x 4.36% = 450.8 miles.
I may switch back to the old gas station to see if there is a benefit in the gas.

Difficult week for good mpg, snow and bad traffic. However got some good individual commutes that helped out. Maybe the gas is E0 Back to the same station as last week and got a consistant fill, so that is nice. SG said 44.8mpg, 7.8 gallons and 348 miles. ODO said 361.9 - 4.36% = 346.1 miles
Things are looking good for the summer if this keeps up
However I had swerve into snow embakment to avoid a crazy guy who figured it would be best to slam on the brakes on the ice. Front air dam was damaged but still functional.

Went to a different station this week because the pumps do not have the E-10 stickers. However the fill location is on an incline so it is a big overfill. So I'll take the hit, hoping that there is no ethanol. SG said 46.6 mpg, 7.3 gallons and 338 miles. ODO said 350.6 miles - 4.36% = 334.7
It was a decent commuting week and probably would have been a solid 45mpg, if not for the overfill.

OD read 388.5 minus 4.36% = 371.6 SG said 370miles, 46.7mpg and 7.9 gal. I believe this was a little overfill. I did fill up one day early because there will be a snow fall tomorrow and I didn't want it to mess up such a good tank. I believe that 46mpg was the actuall if you take away the overfill, the recent mods seem to be paying off. Either way this is the best winter mpg I've gotten
Traffic was good this week with minimal congestion. Temps were in the high twenties and mid thirties all week.

A good week for traffic because of the holidays. Started out with a real bad commute, then had some real good ones, ending with a return trip today at 51.8mpg I finally remembered that I needed to offset the distance traveled because of the shorter tires. Speedo said 436.1 miles traveled, actual was 4.36% different according to http://www.csgnetwork.com/tireinfo4calc.html so it would be 417.1miles. SG also said 43.1mpg and 9.7 gal. so the calibration remains close. It was a real cold week, brrr...
Also, got the rear wheel skirts back on.

A pretty crushing tank On this tank I had the car down for few weeks repairing the front suspension, new rims, tires, alignment, timing belt, oil and trans fluid, at 281,000 miles. Ran it for the week without wheel skirts and only used lean burn just a little. One segment of the commute took 3 hours to travel 41.2 miles, at 14mph average, first snow fall on frozen roads. I was able to make 27mpg on that segment. The temps took a big dive also, mostly in the mid twenties all week. Never, the less, the next tank is already shapping up much better as I get back into the groove.
SG said 35.6 mpg and 9.6 gal on a one click fill.

I'm going back in to edit the distance adjusting 4.36% to 337.5 miles from 352.9 miles.

It was a difficult week for mpg, we'll leave it at that. Car is really in need of maint and could use some mods to help for winter.

Definatly an over fill, three clicks instead of one. This tank had a lot of errends run to get ready for vacation, also ran without scangauge. Used lean burn as much as possible. Next tank should be better because of this overfill, but the car will sit two weeks and when I get back it will be a bit cooler.

See you in Hawaii!!!

Pretty normal tank of commuting. Used lean burn as much as possible and was able to get it to keep from sticking in Open loop, so that is nice. Still got some work to do on it though. Didn't run the SG this week because I'm using it in another car that needs some work.

Well, I didn't realize this tank was gonna break 50mpg, I had a hunch, but because the SG has been so far out of whack lately, I wasn't sure. I filled one day early because the PCM started to get stuck in Open loop again, no doubt because of the nearly constant lean burn Could have done better if it didn't kick out this morning. I really need to work this out....Anyhow it was a pretty normal week of the usuall bad traffic and such. I am very pleased with this result. SG said 54.2mpg and 7.2 gallons.

Pretty good for commuting, however the last tank was a big underfill so this was actually much better and the last was much worse, I guess I could average them together... Anyhow, used lean burn the whole time and SG said 52.9 & 9.2 gallons. Really hoping I can get a 50mpg commute tank before the summer ends

I really dislike the one click fills. It stoped well short this time, so this is much better than it should have been. SG said 51.0 and 7.8 gallons. I got stuck in NYC traffic and that really killed the average. Otherwise I lean burned almost the whole way from Bridgewater to Springfield and then back home. Next tank will probably be low because of this sillyness.

Second Tank using lean burn. This tank got a little help from a 106 mile drive back from North Jersey. Although I think that last fill was about a half gallon light. SG said 8.8 gallons and 53.2mpg which is a full gallon off, it usually isn't that far off, so I presume the last fill was light. Never the less this is a great tank and I will stick with it until I get some more consistant numbers to see what the real gain is.

First Tank using Lean Burn, however July 4th weekend traffic made for two days of bad traffic. Lean Burn definatly helped recover much of the loss. The previous holiday tank was much lower. SG said 47.5 and 9.9 gallons. The accuracy has been skewed quite a bit because the idle gph is not correct. I presume the PCM is comanding a paticular gph and the vehicle is not able to attain it becuase of the crazy altered MAF signal. I'll work on that....

Pretty normal tank for this time of year. Monday morning is bad because of weekend shore traffic and Friday evening is bad because of the same. Otherwise, just normal bad traffic. First tank using the Lean Burn. Just two days of commuting. Also drove around some to get it set up. Lean Burn works really nice Next tank will be using Lean Burn as much as possible. It may be over 50mpg if traffic will yeild, however next tank is July 4th weekend...

Not sure why it was so good this time, SG was saying not so good and I had a bunch more city driving than normal and some rough commutes. Maybe a light fill because it was not the same pump? We'll see on the next tank. SG said 9.4 gallons and 42.9mpg.
Vacuum line still hooked up...

First tank with Wideband, also reconected the vacuum leak, only to find out the fuel trims were still maxed (cleaned the MAF later and that seems to be the issue) Mpg seems to be suffering from reconecting however the temps did drop quite a bit. It seems to only be getting slightly worse mpg. SG said 43.5 and 9.5 galllons.

Not a typical commuting tank, memorial day traffic + lots of city driving + car down a few days for brake repairs + another friday commute + more city driving = not very good mpg. It's ok though, because with the breaks fixed it coasts much better and the Wideband instalation brings me one step closer to lean burn. SG said 42.1 and 10.2 gallons.

I'd like to say this was really this good, but SG said 45.3 mpg and 9.1 gallons. I believe this was an underfill even though I've been using the same pump at the same station for the last few fills. Next tank will show it. This was a very difficult week, some really bad traffic and rain, I was expecting 44.something mpg. Oh well, It's nice to see this high of number and it is possible it is true and in that case it would be the best week of commuting I've had. Next tank will start the summer commuting because of Memorial Day starts the bad Friday traffic.

Summer gas is deffinatly here I could really tell with this tank, it was soo much easier to get good mpg. This tank would have been the same if not better than the last if not for a big storm that killed a to and from work commute. Good mpg none the less. The car needs tires, alignment and more.

Finally did it! Got a 45mpg commute. Besides Friday evening and this Tuesday evening, every commute was 47+ with this morning bringing 51.2 to work. I believe I will soon change the offset on the SG, I have been tracking it and should be ready to bump down the gallons used by .2-.3. SG said 10.0 and 46.7mpg. Summer gas should be here very soon and the higher temps are what really pushed up this tank, it was 40-50's now 60-70's. Could be a good summer if I can get some traffic issues worked out...

Fairly average commuting, not sure why it's this low, SG seemed accurate. It said 44.8mpg and 9.6 gallons. Maybe the last fill was a bit light compared to this one? Only just a little city driving but it brought the average down by three mpg. For some reason the traffic is getting worse, otherwise the mpg would be much much better...

Did more city driving mid way thru the tank, that dropped my average from 47 to 42 according to the scan gauge, then had to regain some. It was a pretty standard week of driving. Need to get some more mods done!
SG said 44.3 and 8.7 gallons. I'm pretty sure the last tank was a little light. The curse of the one click fill.

Did a lot of city driving back and forth to the hospital. Only three days of commuting again. Started the commuting with 36-38mpg average, then had some really good commutes to bring up the average. Warm weather is really helping. This may have been a little short on the fill, it's nearly dead on. SG said 42.6 and 10.0 gallons.

Only did 3.5 commutes to work and those were rough, only 200 of the 393 miles, the remainder was strickly city driving back and forth to the hospital to see my wife and baby. To bad, this tank could have been soo much better. Also had to fill up in Philly, but it seems to be consistant with the NJ fills. SG said 9.8 gallons and 40.0 mpg.

The fender skirts and vacuum leak are really paying off now. Had two segments over 50mpg. 51 and 52 on consecutive days. As well as other very nice segments. However I did a bunch more city driving than normal and those segments really drug down the average. Anyhow, it is still very good and much better than this time last year.

Changed oil on this tank at 265K, 0W20 Mobil1 again. This tank had a bunch more city driving than normal. It also caught the end of the Noreaster in which the wind and rain killed those segments. However there were a couple commutes with warm weather that gave 47-48mpg segments. Nice! SG said 42.9 and 10.3 gallons. I'm liking this warm weather and I'm getting almost as good of mpg as I was at the peak of last summer

Last tank was a big underfill, so I guess average this and the last tank for an idea of where I'm at...42mpg. However the SG indicated mpg was 45.1 for this tank, warmer weather and an earlier start time have helped a bunch. This morning was 48.3 to work, last night was 47.1 on the way home and yesterday was 47.9 on the way to work. Things are looking good for summer. SG said 9.3 so it's a gallon off It seemed to fill corectly this time, so we will see how the next tank goes...

Pretty normal week of driving. Decent tempatures for this time of the year. High 20's to low 30's in the morning and mid to low 40's in the evening. Last tank was definatly little underfill, I think if you average the last three, you'll see what I'm averaging now. This is very good for the winter, especially good compared to averaging 38mpg last winter at this same time...4-5mpg better! SG said 43.0mpg and 9.9 gallons used. This one click inconsistancy is driving me crazy Oh well, it all averages out. I believe it filled corectly this time around....maybe

Yep, the last tank was an overfill and this tank compensates for it's lowness. Never the less, the SG agreed and said 44.1mpg and 9.5 gallons. This was a pretty good week of weather for the middle of winter, mostly high 30's and 40 degree temps all week. Although there was a jack knifed semi that killed 10mpg on one commute home, probably would have been 1mpg higher for the tank without that. Additionally, this could have been a little underfill, the gas gage is moving quicker than normal, next tank will show it. This one click inconsistancy is difficult.

Filled up at a different station this time to get some cheaper gas, pretty sure this was an overfill because the SG has not been this much off. SG said 42.1 and 9.1 gallons. Got the new engine block heater in and working and it was quite effective. On back to back days of not used and used it showed a 3mpg improvement in nearly identical weather and traffic. Hope the next tank is an underfill

This tank includes 60 miles of coast down tests that resulted in a 33mpg average when starting the week of commuting. I think I did pretty good catching up to 40 mpg. It took every commute being 43 mpg to catch up. Pretty much average week, taffic wasn't too bad, but the engine block heater failed, so I'm just running the oil and trans pan heaters. SG said 40.4mpg and 9.9 gallons used.

Not a very good tank because of some foul weather. For instance, 20mph sustained headwinds this morning, with gusts over 30mph, this meant a 36.7mpg tank to work when I normally see 43+. Bad traffic due to the holidays, snow on the first couple days, and my breaker triped on the engine heaters so I didn't have a warm motor for two days. Still have the cold ram air on, need to change that soon, the mpg on coasts have been suffering. SG said 40.3mpg and 10.7 gallons.

Skiped a tank because I went drag racing and bought some unmeasured race gas. Supposedly 2 gallons, but it was way more than that.
This tank was a rough one, holiday traffic, leaving work late and a snow storm. Really unfavorable traffic this week pretty much sums it up. This is also the first full tank with the Cold Ram Air, but even so I would not consider this tank typical. SG said 41.8 and 9.7 gallons. There ought to be some fill error here though with the one click fill. We'll see how the tanks start to stack up after the holidays. Just want to keep it above 40 thru the winter.

Pretty normal tank for this time of the year, highly variable weather. From freezing rain to 60 degrees one morning. Traffic was worst than normal because I went into work late and came home late. SG reported 43.8 and 9.4 gallons, the fuel gauge indicates a little overfill. I'm happy with this for now....

Skipped a tank to change from the full fill in philly at a higher cost per gallon to the one click fills in NJ with thier lower cost and higher inconsistancy. The full fills were used to set up the SG, it's good now, so I'll go thru the winter this way.
This marks one year of fuel logs and some big improvements.
This tank wasn't so good because of some more Noreaster driving, plus I ended up taking an abulance ride from work, so my wife drove this car to come get me and she killed the mpgs. Her avg. was 25 She comented to me how it got better mpg at 70 vs. 65, when I never drive above 55 It's all good. I was also going to try some drag racing so I added 5 gallons of 93oct. about 90% of the way thru the tank so I would be on empty at the track, that's why 15 gallons used. SG reported 15.5 gallons used vs. 15.9 at the pump.

SG said 44.7mpg and 13.1 gallons, it's not to far off, but enough so to make me give up this gas station and the full to the top fills and go back to NJ and the one click fills. I'm really unsure if 13.48 gallons is possible to be put into this tank, I guess so??? The pump even had a certification sticker from Oct.09. Never the less, it's some good mpg for this time of the year. Traffic was normal, with morning temps it the mid 30's to low 40's and evening temps in the low 50's. I don't think it will get any better than this, unless ....

Better than I thought because this is the tank that I drove 100 miles on a broken O2 sensor getting terrible mpgs. SG said 39.8mpg and 12.1 gallons used, I'm not surprised it's off this time. Also, the pumps in Phila. that I was saying might need calibrated, just got calibrated by the state Did all but one trip to work with the vacuum line conected. Of course I noticed a big jump in mpg by disconecting it. Skirts are working, but just have had too many issue to make any tangilble observations. We'll see what the next tank holds.

This is one day of commuting plus the trip down to VA Beach. Into the wind the whole way and possibly the PCM went into Open loop because of the vacuum leak I made. Also killed the O2 sensor by bottoming out and got really really bad city mpg after that. Whole trip was taken with the rear skirts on. They do seem to help although the circumstances did not allow it to show.
SG said 9.2 gallons, so the calibration seems to back in order.

Not a very good result, but good for the hand that was delt me. Did lots of city driving in the end of the Noreaster, that left me with 171 miles at 36mpg. Not a good start to the week. Then my parent in laws borrowed the car, another 36mpg segment, then my wife borrowed it and got a 29mpg segment (I think she did some street racing ) Commute mpgs have been in the 45-47 range which is very very good. So the results will start to show soon. Also got some mods coming for the next tank or two. Weather has been coooold low 40's in the morning and low 60's in the evenings, if even that.
SG was right on at 12.1 gallons.

This was an outstanding tank until the Noreaster hit. Was sitting at 43.9 on the SG, then had a hard time pulling even 40mpg in the rain, wind and traffic. Only got 36.4 mpg on the way home tonight Anyhow, the SG seems to be accurate again, it said 9.8 gallons, so only 0.2 off. Not really sure what was happening with those other tanks being so far off. Anyhow, this whole tank was with the vacuum leak and it is definatly helping signficantly. I'd say by at least 3mpg. I'm getting a Lean code now and the system is probably going in closed loop. We'll see if I can get this sort out a bit more. Sure wish I figured this out in the summer....

The first three days of this tank were done with the vacuum line connected and the PCM reset. The average was 40mpg, reported by SG. The last 2-3days was with it disconcected (vacuum leak) and the intake cap plugged to eliminate the potential un-metered air leak, the average climbed to 42 after a couple days of 45+mpg. This is a nice change....
I also changed the oil, at 256,000 to Mobil1 0w20 and did the coil on plug conversion. I saw no change in mpg from either of these.
I'd say that winter gas is here and rearing it's head. Time to fight back!

This is a bit frustrating, the scan gauge was off by one gallon this time??? How can this be? SG said 43.1 mpg for the tank and 11.5 gallons. The SG was real close on the last tank. I really think the gas station I'm filling at is not very good. Changed my oil during this tank, at 256,000, to 0w20 Mobil 1, and reset my ECM because intake air line being diconected. Resetting seemed to bring the expected mpg back to normal for the remained of the tank. I gotta find a more consistant place to fill...

Took a huuuuggggeee hit this week from the worst traffic I've encountered since tracking my mpg here. Too much rain and too many accidents left me way behind after the first three segments. Tempatures drops came with the rain and the front end noise is getting worse. My mpg at 50mpg and 21tps is off by about 3-5mpg. Maybe winter gas is here??? It's no fun getting stuck in such bad traffic soo many times. This was definatly a bad week for getting good mpg. It is what it is and it really isn't that bad.
Maybe it's time to start fighting back against the weather...

Not exactly sure why this tanks mpg is low??? SG said 44.5mpg and it was real close the last few times. I did fill up in philly again, I did have to replace the battery on this tank, had some really good days when the vacuum hose was off then had some horrible days after it was hooked back up. Just confusing, so I'll ignore this....

I filled up in Philly so I could pump my own gas and top the tank off and see if the SG was still reporting acuratly. I was surprised that my 12.7 gallon tank took 12.851, SG said it should take 12.6 and I would believe that to be true. I think this station is ripping people off. Either way, it's only 1 mpg difference. I need to find another station for next week to make sure the SG is right on. Once I get several stations confirming what the SG says, then I'll be satisfied that it is perfectly calibrated. Either way, the DWL trip to SC has helped me refine my commute even further. The tank started out with the remainder of the SC trip, which was completed at high speeds and the mpg was 41. So I started out behind where I normally would start. Each day's avg. was 45 or greater, with one segment at 49.5. I think that I can squeeze one 45mpg tank in before the weather changes and the winter gas comes....I hope

Drove the first 200 miles like I should and was getting 50.3 mpg. Then decided I needed to get home to help out my wife and see the kids, so I drove the last 300 miles pretty much flat out, SG reported exactly the right fuel used 12.2 gallons and the right mpg, 42.4mpg. The SG is finally calibrated perfectly! Not too bad for going flat out, the first segment of the next tank is also flat out and was 41mpg, but I'll use the rest of it for commuting...

Not as good as I hoped for the trip to SC. Learned that significant hills are needed to really get the mpg up. Only small gently rolling hills on this trip, and they hurt the mpg over flat ground cruising. Still a good tank, learned a lot. SG reported 50.0mpg.

Usual commute plus a bunch more city driving that really put a damper on the mpg. Had three segments of 49mpg, so I know that if traffic conditions are better, then the mpg will be better.
SG reported 43mpg, so the calibration is real close now. Now off to South Carolina

This doesn't really seem right??? I thought this was not going to be a good tank because there was a lot of bad traffic on the commute and I did a lot of short runs in the city. We'll see what the next fill gives? SG reported 42.4mpg and 9.7 gallons. I calibrated to the numbers reported by the pump, maybe it shut off early?...we'll see what happens next week. Otherwise, this is the best tank yet for the commute.

Much better results than I thought. I did at least three WOT runs this tank plus some really bad traffic. I believe the info learned from the SG is helping, doing more DWL than before. This tank includes putting in a new High Flow Cat, new struts, lowering the car 1", and new front brakes because I had some siezed bushings. Maybe fixing this stuff helped? Also had the state inspection this tank, passed with no problems
This tank does not include the 90% city drive return from work on friday, no doubt this helped the average a bit.

Not too bad considering the crazy bad traffic encounter on this tank. Rain, fire trucks, accidents, congestion....this week had it all. Just one day of nice traffic. Second tank with the ScanGauge, I've been alternating between DWL and Coasting. It seems that some of my coasts were not benefiting, just breaking even, and DWL is better in those instances. Lord willing, I'll keep learning Didn't get a reading from the SG because I was messing around with setting the gas used to calibrate it while the lady behind me was honking, so I forgot to reset and check the AVG MPG, but I think it was around 47mpg reported. Either way I adjusted the gallons used and the mph so the next tank should be closer....
Also, I park the car to change the struts, put on lowering springs, install the high flow cat and fix a sticking slider bushing on the front calipers. Hopefully these things help

The SG said I was at 49mpg when I left work Friday, but the commute home in the crazy shore traffic left me at 38mpg on the trip home, that Friday commute hurts more than I thought....

This is nearly pure highway miles. From Columbus to somewhere near Philly. Very hilly/mountainous. I was trying very hard to get good mpg because knew this car was capable of alot, but I had no idea this was hiding in there. Same changes as at the begining of the trip but without the flat tire and no rain. I think that in warmer weather and on flat ground the mpg could be better...

This is two tanks combined. The 8 gallon one was a partial fill so I could get to Columbus and do some drag racing, that didn't work out thought. This tank also represents the trip from Indy to Vandellia which was driven at 60-65mph. Then from Vandellia to Washington which was driven at 50mph, then from Washington to Indy which was driven at 70-75mph and quite aggressily. This was 8.001 gallons at $2.789. The next partial tank was from Indy to Columbus at 70-80mph, 10.841 gallons at $2.639. The leg from Vandellia to Washington revealed just how good of mpg the car was capable of by starting out 20 miles less than the 47mpg tank and ending up 40 miles ahead of the 47mpg tank. And this leads us to the next tank

First tank of gas for the trip to Illinois. Travel from Philadelphia to Indianapolis on one tank. However 300miles of that was on a flat tire, I didn't notice because of the intense rain and wind. I couldn't believe how much less throttle it took once I put on the spare. I was really trying to get good mpg and coasted at every opertunity. Average speed was probably around 50mph.
Before the trip I aired the tires up to 47psi, put in new Motorcraft plugs, gaped to .057, cleaned the MAF and TB.

Definatly overfilled on the last tank, just a little though. This tank is closer to what I'm expecting right now. It was a normal week with a bit of rain and a bit of traffic. Not really pushing the coasting, just doing the routine coasts. I think there is something a little out of whack with the tune. I need to clean the MAP, TB and check the plugs and tire psi. to make sure they are all right. This little stumble I've been feeling and the slight surge may be hurting mpg's because I'm expecting better than this. Otherwise, 41mpg doesn't seem as good as it once did.

Not exactly sure why this drop in mpg...possibly an overfill, but I did exactly the same thing as last time, but at a different gas station.... I'll know by tonight, if the gas gauge doesn't move as much as it did last time....I really thought this tank would be outstanding because I hit 400 miles and the fuel light had not come on yet. Oh well, still good mpg

Wasn't able to strech out this tank to Friday because of an extra trip to a friends house that was mostly highway. However there was crazy bad traffic cause of some hard rain, so it is probably a wash on the highway gain and idling in traffic loss. Also because I didn't take my usually 90% city drive on the Friday commute home, that helped a bit also. Otherwise the temps were a little lower 50's in the mornings and 60's in the evening from the rain.
Also, I've started to do the one click thing at the pump to eliminate the inconsistancy's caused by the gas pump jockey.

I'm surprised this tank was as good as it was. This tank includes a rediculous commute home in shore traffic over Memorial Day weekend, I actually had to turn off the car a couple times cause traffic was utterly stoped. It also includes another Friday commute which means a 95% city ride home and lot's of idling while waiting in line to get to the stop light.

Changed oil at 246,000 from 5W20 Castrol to 0W30 Castrol Syn. Also re-set computer after changing oil. Pretty cold temps in the morning again. From 34 up to 45 in the morning, evening temps in the 70's -80's. Also put on a new intake tube and did a bunch of idling trying to find a vacuum leak. Also put on a 30% alternator overdrive pulley to compensate for the big crankshaft underdrive pulley that was not alowing my battery to charge at idle. I'm thinking that the last tank was overfilled more than I thought and probably a little high.

Definatly overfilled a little on the last tank, just a little though. I'm wondering if I'm having some problems with the state of tune. We'll check that out soon to make sure the MAF, TB, plugs, tire psi. etc... are all where they should be. I guess 41mpg doesn't seem that good anymore

This is the tank I was hoping for a couple weeks ago. The Parent In Laws only drove 54 miles on this tank. It might have been overfilled a bit at the last fill up, however, it was a little overfilled this fill up also. Summer gas is definatly here and the warmer temps are helping. Traffic is still not that good the temps have been volitale. Starting temps in the moring ranging from 38-58 degrees. I also didn't use the engine heaters for three of the mornings. We'll see if this was a freak tank or the real deal next week...

Parent-in-laws drove quite a bit of this tank with defrost blasting cause of the crazy rain and humidity. Rain also stopped the use of the engine heaters. Rained every day the car was driven. Not a good tank at all. I was hopinng this tank would last until Saturday, so I might do a short fill to reset after the folks leave.

Parent-in-laws used the car for most of this tank, I just drove it two days into work and those two days had some pretty bad traffic due to some crazy construction and the time that I left work. They had the A/C maxed out and enjoyed themselves driving Little Blue, so it's good to see the milage wasn't hurt too bad, but it did make me cringe to see that A/C cranked If it had just been me commuting, it should have been around 40 mpg juding from the fuel needle movement I saw. Oh, well? One more week of them driving the car and then I'll be back to the routine. Summer gas should be here very soon, can't wait to see if there is a noticable increase in mpg's.

Crazy tank, actually took two weeks and a top off. Started off with a holy radiator stranding me at work, 6 gallons of antifreeze several stops later I made it home while only overheating it baddly three times
Anyhow that first segment was terrible mpg, plus the attendent reallllly overfilled me. 103.7 miles and 4.487 gallons, at least two gallons more than normal, anyhow, the second segment was 393.7 miles and 8.704. So I'm just putting them together to get a somewhat acurate number. The actually from the second segment was probably around 40mpg. Although it was a bad week for MPG, cold mornings followed by some pretty bad days of stop and go. It is what it is and here it is...

Weather in the mid thirtys in the mornings and mid fifties in the evening. No car pooling this week so I really focused on driving good and getting the coasting thing down. It worked, first 40 mpg tank ever. Also turned 244,000 miles this week.

Not as good as I had hoped, did a little more city driving than usual because of the carpool thing now, also had some really cold weather this week, first three days were 25 degrees in the morning, I also didn't concentrate as much on driving well because of some good conversation about Ecomodding. I think I've inspired him to try some mods out. Should be warmer this coming week, hopefully the first 40mpg tank.....

Pretty good weather, week started in low 40's and is now in the 50's. Probably would have been a slightly better mpg number, but I've been picking up another fella to ride work, this has added a bunch more city driving to my commute. That should end next week. Still using the heaters

Why was I at 38-39 mpg in colder weather and then dropped the mpg's into the 36's, only now to regain again in warmer weather. I was driving only 50mph and accelerating reallllly slow to get the 38-39mpg. It was really getting on the nerves of those impatient Philly drivers and causing some problems. I sped up the acceleration to moderate and increased my speed to 55mph. This has stopped their horns from honking

Finally drag raced, ran the tank down to nearly empty and put in 2 gallons of 92 ocatane. Otherwise I was having a really good tank, probably mid 38-39mpg. Never the less, three wot runs down the 1/4 didn't hurt it as bad as I thought it would. Best time was 15.783 @88.37 mph, not my best et. but the best mph by over 1 mph. I attribute that to the aero mods. Changed the oil this tank, same 5-20 castrol, also gapped the plugs from 0.062 to 0.065. This was also the warmest week yet, 40's almost all week. Also the first week running the heaters.

First tank using the oil pan and transmission pan heaters. Sunday night we got about a foot of snow, so I didn't use the heaters Monday morning. The first four days of the week started with 10 degree weather, so this has been the coldest week so far. However, today, Friday it got up to 60 degrees, so a big warm up Thursday night and all day Friday. Only used the heaters for three of the five days of this tank. They seem to be working well and the motor reached full temp. about 1-1.5 miles sooner than normal. This tank should have been worse, but I "assume" the heaters helped a bit and I really focused on driving better because Monday and Tuesday in the snow really hurt the mpgs. Anyhow, the next tank ought to have the block heater in and more consistant temps so we'll see where this goes...

Half tank this time because I need to be on empty by Friday to go drag racing. This tank was on track to be very good, but a couple WOT runs to impress a buddy killed it, never the less it is quite good.
Wont' log the next tank because I will add two gallons of high octane at the track to get a better time slip. It's a shame because I'm pushing to get the block heater in and won't be able to see the results for a while. Oh well, at least I'll get my fix of speed for a while.

The attendent definitly overfilled a little. Otherwise it would have been around 37.5mpg. Exteme gusty winds for the first day of this tank, news said up to 60mph. I could tell it killed the mpg's that day. I usually don't see the needle move until past 50 miles, it moved just past 20 miles.
Next tank should even out this overfill and resulting loss. Darn you NJ for not letting us pump our own gas, and thank you NJ for having the nearly the cheapest fuel in the nation.
New record for miles driven on a tank. Although the fuel light came on around 390 miles, the last two tanks it didn't come on at all.

First three days on this tank were quite cold, last two days much warmer 40's then 50's. It obviously helped because up to that point I was on track for 36 mpg.
Still practicing the coasting and getting better at decision making. Although the police might not agree
I'm wondering if the drop back from high 37's to 36's is a maint issue. I hear some strut clanking and there's a slight hicup at idle sometimes. Maybe time for some joints and plugs???
I'll have to check those out at the next oil change.
Also, Block heater, oil pan heater, trans oil pan heater and radiator fan controler on the way

Not as good as I expected. Lots of stop and go traffic, snow and possibly the ECU has to relearn from last weeks indulgence.
Been expirementing with different coasting, I think I'm getting better at it, but the mpg's don't show it, we'll see next week.

I'm affectionatly calling this a "Control" tank. No coasting, no taking it easy accelerating and no driving slow on the highway. Early to work and late home left me wanting to get the commute over quick so I could be with the family. So I accelerated quickly, drove 70+ on the highway and tasted the speed limiter twice. Also blew the tranny cooler hose off which caused quite a mess. Also the first snow of the season. Anyhow, not as bad of mpg as I thought and it shows almost a 4 mpg loss because of driving techinique. During the heat of the summer I struggled to get this good of mpg's, so I'd consider the mod's done to be a big time success. Although it hurts the avg. mpg, I'm posting this up to remember how far things have gotten.

Last tank I tried coasting consistantly, ended the week being able to coast for 7% of my commute, this week I was able to coast about 25% However last weeks tank and this weeks tank are almost identacle in mpg's, hmmmm? Anyhow, this tank marks a milestone....First 400 mile tank ever and the fuel light didn't even come on, previous was 392 and I ran out of gas going for 400, that was a 34mpg tank. Also this is the first time I've been able to go 5 days of my commute without filling up. Good times
Slightly warmer this week, mid twentys all week. Car covered in salt, so maybe the aero is not so good

Added HD lip, 195 degree thermostat replaced 180 degree, tires were at 32, pumped them up to 45psi, 5lb lighter rear sway bar and put pasenger side splash gaurd under the motor for the winter. Weather has been volitile, but avg. temps around 40 degrees. This is my second best tank ever. I got 37.89 in the heat of the summer this year, so the changes are making a big difference. Traffic was pretty bad this week with a lot of stop and go, so it could have been better. I hope to be over 40mpg on my commute when summer hits.
