That's fine. I added your car info to the thread title for context. Consider starting a fuel log as well ... once you get a known good fill.


And I just thought of a question: are you driving the sedan or the hatchback?

surmise that the MPG was about 36.25 ... The car's MPG computer said 37.2

I'd be curious to know how far off it is. My experience with 2 newer cars (Nissan Micra and Mitsubishi Mirage, both automatics and manuals) is that they were fairly close (2-5% off), but still optimistic of course.
