Definitely get an Ultragauge. Instrumentation like that is invaluable for monitoring your fuel economy and driving techniques. Plus it can be a game to see how high you can raise your high scores.

The 31.4 mile trip is driving from the top of the Grapevine to Magic Mountain in Valencia. The 28.7 mile trip is from the town of Tehachapi toward Bakersfield.

I'm on Club xB as BestmpgxB. Find any post there from me, and click on the 1000 km tank link in my signature. You'll find lots of fuel economy tips there.
