I heard that. I kept looking down at first, but after awhile I just got used it (like the Echo/Scion center console too).

I just filled up the calibration tank and glad I did. It was more off than I thought (+12.2%!!! ) but I kind of knew something was wrong when the SG "fuel used" was beginning to stray far from the in-board fuel gauge. The tank was small but not that small. Still broke 40mpg so that's still something but I think getting stuck at a foreign/alien turn light (I had no idea it would take THAT long) didn't do me any favors.

My 5 pillars of fuel efficiency:
  • driving style
  • aerodynamics
  • tires
  • weight reduction
  • engine maintenance
