Think the IMA battery is shot, two straight weekends of discharge/grid charging haven't brought it back. Drove most of this tank without any assist or autostop.

Seems like when I start the tank with 80+ mpg and it drops to the final mpg the FCD reads lower than actual mpg. If I start out lower than 75 mpg and work my way up to the final mpg the FCD reads higher than actual mpg.

Lol, so much for the theory that half tanks keep the FCD closer to reality. FCD showed 76.3 mpg, which is as far off as it ever was on a full tank. I'm going back to full tanks now, don't like stopping for gas that much anyway!

Test tank to see if filling at half a tank gets the FCD closer to the actual mpg. Test confirmed (but will try this same method on the next three or four tanks to see if it's consistent)!
Really weird result, because the FCD was showing 76.8, so the actual mpg was higher than the FCD at half a tank, where it is usually 2-4 mpg lower than the FCD shows at a full tank.
Stayed with the first click on this tank, used my usual pump, filled in the morning like usual, carpooled the same as usual, no route change, etc . . .so the only difference was filling at half a tank i.l.o. a full tank.

Came in on fumes again, at zero bars for 20 miles.

I'm considering going to a second or third click again when I fill up so I can go over 700 miles without risking burning up the fuel pump

Probably will start doing it again next tank
