I then upped all tires to 50 psi and had two more tanks in a row over 40.

Had my best trip yesterday of 125 miles of combined mileage and was showing 43.6 on the UG.

Trust them when they say those silly devices EDIT DON'T WORK aren't needed.

Really though, thanks for the kind words. This has to be one of the most helpful, humble, knowledgeable, articulate bunch of posters I know.
