Finally took the time to add my fuel log. Feels more official than the note pad in my glove box. Having to put in that 50.8 for my first tank bummed me out because it pulls down the lifetime average bad. The car came with giant Accord wheels n tires, nasty looking air filter, old plugs, etc. I drove it as is for the first tank to get a baseline to improve from.

Decided to bump tire pressure up from 45 to 55. They are brand new so they should handle it just fine. This should help a little on this tank.
I hope to get more miles on this current tank driving alone. Had a passenger (ugg, weight) for almost half of the miles on last tank.
I fully expect to break 70 mpg on this one. That is current goal, I can up it later right?
While adding air I looked at my brake roters thru the wheel and saw them shiny and new looking. Forgot to add to things done that there is brand new front rotors and ceramic pads. Had a warped rotor when I got it and even though we don't really use brakes on here (right?) the pulsing brake pedal drove me nuts.

Wish me luck on hitting 70.
