I finished the trip getting about 26 MPG. Most other times on this trip I get anywhere between 30 and 32 MPG. I believe most of this had to do with how fast I was driving on the cold engine. I sped out of the parking lot, accelerated hard to each of the stop signs, etc. before I was finally able to get on the highway. You're right about not making glaring errors...I still did my best to coast before red lights and keep the car rolling, although Murphy's law was in full effect. Since I was running late every single traffic light was red. Needless to say I was not very happy having to stop for them.
