Different trips

So i went on a trip last weekend and when i finished i fueled up. I averaged about 44 mpg on that trip and i usually get about 36 or so on my comute to work and back which is about 7 miles each day.

So my conclusion was that without using reverse and not having a cold engine much, I got about 20% better mileage on my long trip than a bunch of short trips. I wouldn't have thought different types of trips make such a big difference in gas mileage
