Where do you get your elevation change from, a GPS unit?

Those are some pretty good numbers. It's cool to think that you can go 38 miles with .7 gallons of gas - I mean, think of how far the average person could go with .7 gallons of gas, maybe like 20 miles or so.

I've been having to drive pretty long (100-120 mile) trips down route 17 in NY for the last week, so I've been learning the route more. At first, I was getting about ~44MPG, and then I had to rush back one day, so it was only 41-42, but the last trip, I got 47 going down and back up, so I'm pretty happy with that.
