4th fill

4th measured fill-up = 59 MPG US / 4.0 L /100 km over 763 km / 474 miles.

Not bad, considering the weather's been colder than last tank, and includes a couple of short freeway trips at higher than usual speeds for me (woulda beaten 60 MPG for the tank if not for the need for speed!).

HOW COLD WAS IT??? I used the seat heater one day... for the 2nd time ever since I got the car.

Again, keep in mind much the great MPG comes from driving in pretty ideal conditions at moderate speeds (rarely do I hit 60 mph / 100 km/h).
