I don't pick out the "Bad" entries, but the ones where I'm loaded to capacity for any large portion of the tank aren't exactly representative of the norm. Except lately, I guess.

I could have started another fuel log to show what I"m getting while hauling crap around in my 4 cylinder 3 speed auto van... I didn't though, because the numbers hauling are still above EPA... LOL.

I will post this next fill up, though. Even though I just hauled this thing at 70MPH home for like 140 miles, after a 140 mile trip up to get it, again, at like 70 MPH. I believe I may have still gotten close to or right at 30 MPG for this tank, based on the fuel gauge. I'd at least guess it's close to my normal average, but I've been EOC as much as possible this tank.
