Thanks, Mech. I burned up my wife's car's engine. Started down the highway in 20 degree F weather, and noticed no cabin heat. By the time my addled brain figured out the problem, the engine was fried.

I retired my old fuel log and set up a new one. Mean Green Toaster Machine averaged 49.4 mpg over 30,375 miles, 176% of EPA. Clean Green Toaster Machine is averaging 45.8 mpg over 2235 miles, 164% of EPA. Unfortunately, the city tanks are ~40 mpg instead of 55 mpg, while the highway tanks are about the same.
