Thinking about seeking some alternate routes as this car seems to perform especially well at middle speeds.
Ah ok. Sorry to hear. I know that can be a huge pain to get all the stuff back. And yeah that makes sense. All freeway will get u good mileage with these cars. Im mostly city so i get 25-26 mpg average per tank. When i drive like a hoot i get 20. Thats with tons of idle to heat the car or cool it down depending on the weather. But i managed 43.3 on a 30 min trip that consisted of mostly 35 to 40 mph.

I think I have it all nailed down as far as the wallet.

Next benchmark for me will be getting my UltraGauge calibrated and hopefully to start seeing 45mpg as I get used to the car, tweak my route, and start to buckle down on technique. Ultimately I'd like to see 50 but that'll be fairly more tough.
