That is my averaged historical commute trip mileage. Write down the trip mpg after each trip, with other details like temperature and wind. After several years of collecting and averaging, patterns start to emerge. There is a lot of daily variation due to conditions and my own inconsistency, but the sheer mass of years of data overwhelm that.

11-mile commute: 100 mpg - - - Tank: 90.2 mpg / 1191 miles
