Hello -

It looks like I got some vindication quicker than I had planned :

Trip: home to work - 2009/01/30 - 61.4 MPG
Quote:
ROUTE : 10 West -> 710 South -> 105 West -> 405 South -> Exit Freeway => Roughly 27+ miles
----
NET ELEVATION CHANGE : ~210 feet drop
----
SCANGAUGE "CURRENT" READINGS :
61.4 MPG,
0.4 Gallons,
200 Water Temp Max,
27.6 Miles,
2039 RPM Max,
0.5 Hours,
59 MPH Max,
46 MPH AVG
----
IAT READING : Hot Air Intake led to Input Air Temp readings of around 130+ degrees F.
----
WEATHER(.com) :
74.5 degrees F,
Sunny,
14.5% Humidity,
23 degrees F Dew Point,
30.21 in. Pressure,
----
TIME : ~11:15 AM to ~11:45 AM, ~30 minutes
----
RECENT CAR CHANGES : Lots, see http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...lugs-6920.html
----
HYPOTHESIS : Recent tune-up + hot dry LA weather (Santa Anas). Goldilox traffic (not too pushy) with some strategic turtles along the way. Data points VERY comparable to previous, except even drier. Broke the record in the last 20 seconds.
This is my "milk-run" where I make most of my MPG hay. If I keep the car in good running shape, it should give me some good runs in spring and summer.
