On a side note, by using the current mpg guage on my scanguage, which is an average of the current drive, my wife and I have been perfecting our driving technique and have been averaging 30 mpg for the tank thus far. And this is on several trips of about 10 miles each. So far so good! Both of us getting into the spirit of things helps a lot!
RIP Maxima 1997-2012
