Pretty good mpgs even with a massive cold snap, short trips and a snow/ice storm!

I have had to go back to the Hess/Speedway station Pump #1 due to Walmart closing up... so this tank has location bias, but next tank will show more accuracy.

So this tank definitely is going to average put my previous tank... so much for keeping my tank mpg over 45 this year lol.

I had to get 93 octane due to Wally World being out of 87, still decently priced.

A woman got my usual pump, so I had to go to the one behind her. I do believe that this is a underfill, and it will show next tank.

The tank had a lot of Interstate driving, with the lean burn tuned to run ~16.1-16.5 AFRs at 55-65 mph.

All on 87 octane

Going to new pump from now on! Wally World's 93 is MUCH cheaper than RPs, so I will get gas from pump #7 from now on.

I hit a deer this tank and had considerable front end damage. I didn't expect great FE, but I didn't give up

New fill method: fill till turn off on lowest setting, then to closest .x0

Early fill to see how modifying the LB box was helping. It is inconclusive due to rushing on Thanksgiving Day and a full throttle 10-70 mph roll. Good to see the car still has good power for its age and mileage!

Gas under $2, woohoo!

Switched back to Pump #8 @ RPCS for this fill. Idk if that threw off the numbers, but they were almost spot on with my SG.

I'm surprised that this tank was as high as it is. I did a couple 2nd gear pulls up to 5000 rpm just cause (car pulls great BTW!) And expected a drop from the previous tank. I'm not complaining though

1st gas for under $2.00/gal. in quite some time!

My pump was broken this time around. I went to another pump and parked the same way as usual to minimize differences. It turns out that the pump was acting weird? It was s-s-s-looow on the usual lowest setting, and as the fuel got close to it, it just slowed down the stream! I'm calling this a slight overfill.

First tank of the second year! This tank had 0 lean burn miles though. This tank will be a starting point/ base tank. This is what is possible without LB

93 octane... is ridiculous! +$0.69 price difference between 93 and 87 around here!
