Below freezing weather, idling to get the car warm enough to see out the windows, bad traffic, low tires, a flat in there somewhere I believe, plus lots of local driving while holiday shopping. I think the only thing that would make this tank worse is if I had punctured a hole in the tank.

The weather was pretty good this tank with only a couple days of driving home with the A/C on (33-35 mpg, bleh).

Traffic now sucks really bad with school back in session and lots of construction. My commute time is up by 10-20 minutes so I'm going to have to keep on top of tire pressure and making sure I'm out of the house early.

Filled at usual pump @ Shell on 22.

Had to guestimate the hundreths of a gallon since the receipt I wrote it on got wet. But anyway, only a few days that were disgustingly hot and humid. Traffic was a hair better, but not by much.

Hooray for 70° weather! Changed route to take turnpike instead of the skyway because the traffic was just ridiculous. Depends on the day whether 78 is better than 22 coming home, but that won't matter in a week since we're moving.

Just got the tire fixed, still need to refill it back to proper PSI because the garage won't do it. Got the oil change done too. Garage says the check engine light is because of faulty ECU readings, but I'm 10k over the warranty period on it. Have to get this taken care of before something breaks and I don't know about it.

15 degree mornings, lots of crazy holiday traffic, snow, and construction. Plus my front driver side tire is low again (must be a slow leak).

This is usually the worst fill up of the year, judging from the history. I'll be taking the car in for a full tune-up soon, hopefully next month.

Looking at the commute data I put together, I need to start leaving earlier. Also the cold seems to kill mileage by up to 5-6 MPG for similar commute times (nearly 20 degree difference).

So begins the <20 F mornings. Traffic is horrible in the evenings and getting worse in the mornings. Check engine light is on and 1k miles overdue for an oil change: I'll probably get a whole tune-up after the holidays and I have extra cash again.

Starting to keep track of average air temp during commutes along with trip MPG and commute time/ duration. See what I can see in a few months.

And so begins the mornings @ 50F and below, heavy traffic because of increasing construction and school days, and evenings @ ~55F just to complicate matters.

Heavy traffic from school and construction in Jersey City is killing my local mileage. Traffic from backups because of construction and accidents is killing my highway mileage.

Maybe someday I'll actually have time to work on that grill block I've been waiting to finish since May. >:-(

Bleh. Traffic + A/C use = lower MPG. Mornings aren't so bad, but afternoons are killer.

In the morning there is very limited, if any, traffic and it's cooler out. In the afternoon there is always a lot of traffic and the car has been sitting in the sun all day besides being 95+ degrees right then.

I need a commute I can bike or, better yet, no commute at all.

No overfill, normal pump at the shell on 22.

Still haven't put the grill block on, it's been raining for the last 12 days. Maybe today since it seems to have stopped a bit.

Stupid gas station attendant overfilled my tank by .172 gallons. The pump stops, you pull the nozel; that's it. Especially when paying with a card. Moron.

I actually had to do a double take on this one. The exact same distance as the last tank? Crazy.

Anyway, the grill block, even the tape needs to go back on. Granted I can probably explain away the extra fuel consumption by the extra hour of sitting in traffic yesterday and the increase in traffic in general that has happened this tank. All tires are back up to ~50 psi since the front two tires were down to 35(D) and 45(P).

If not for tires + traffic, this could have been a better tank than the last one but I'll never know for sure.

Just tried to keep up with good practices since I haven't been able to rebuild the MPGuino yet.

Started work on the foam grill block this weekend just before filling up and removed the packing tape block to check fitting. No new tape has been put in place, so this the next fill up should show whether or not it's really helping. Partial front undertray and coroplast lower block need to be done next time I have free time.

Filled up at Shell on 22 East, not my usual pump.

Got the lower grill block mocked up; needs to be modified, though, since at highway speed it appears that no air is getting to the rad (license plate pushes it past the hole). Had a pretty fairly long trip at > normal speed dropping off Mel's grandmother so that didn't help.

Neither did the 35* mornings, rain, and running errands on the weekend.

This tank was all over the place weather-wise. First half was 70*, second half was 50*. Put on my packing tape lower grill block at just about half a tank when the cold started. End of the tank was me driving 70 down the parkway to get to my race in time. Work has started on the permanent upper grill block, and a good thing too since I can poke my finger through the packing tape there now.

Right after the last fill-up we used my car all weekend for running errands with the A/C on, the tires were down 5lbs of pressure each (filled to 45 psi with 1/4 tank left), and I was futzing with technique by trying just NC instead of EOC and leaving the engine on for some traffic lights.

No single thing killed my milage, just a lot of little things.

I blame getting stuck in the Parkway's shore traffic and several days in the high 90's (making me turn on the A/C).

2 more new tires, synthetic oil change, and a fuel system cleaning at 3/4 tank. The fuel system cleaning may have added to the MPG drain during the cleaning itself.

New side view mirrors have shipped, the old will be a template for a blank. Replacement grill for more permanent (but removable) grill block has been purchased and should arrive by the next fill.
