Short tank to fill up before a 300 mile journey. AC use is killing FE, but not all that bad. Was forced to keep pace with the traffic on the highway. This tank is filled at a random filling station, so the next will be in trouble most likely.

Using Hang Time more than P&G because need AC more and more, as heat sears us in the car.

MPGuino coming useful for most part.

Intermittant AC use. Wife used the vehicle for 60 miles, with terrible FE figures (barely half of what I manage).

MPGuino is calibrated now. Beautiful feedback medium. Love you dcb, for this baby.

Long constant speed stretches of 150 miles x 2. Used MPGuino (newly installed) to keep a light right foot. sparing use of P&G, mainly cruising. P&G is a pain in traffic on Highways. No spare, tyres at 50 PSI. MPGuino does make a difference.

Keeping revs under limit after Pale's advise, but HAVE to keep AC ON because of the sweltering heat. These days not even trying to scrimp on AC use, and so EOC coasting has given way to E on C. Also there is some low attention to tire pressure, and I think the front driver side tire patch is leaking due to excessive heat. ... bad times for an Indian hypermiler...

Long (by my standards) drive. Practiced P&G for the first half of the drive, with mixed results about FE - I had to keep the AC on for avoiding wife shouting at me.

When returning , a long stretch was with no P&G and constant high speed of ~60mph , which did no good to FE.

Also included are 2 hrs. of rush hour crawling in metro traffic, with AC kept ON to avoid getting steamed alive (could be the biggest contributor to the FE debacle here)

Short tank before filling up for long drive. Contains results of Pale's advice correcting my interpretations about SVOboy's jackrabbit pulses. Obviously it helped.

Quite frequent AC use. Wife using Car to learn P&G - Bittersweet feelings indeed! )

Still want to install the MPGuino, but no electrician helping me in this. Kinda stuff to be ashamed of for an ecomodder, but that's how it is...

Summer now a factor working against me. AC use is now approx 100 miles of 447 driven. (Thankfully discounted by EOC coasting)

Got stuck in a horrible 2 hr. jam and had to haul boot full of load + 4 passengers for ~100 miles

Overall not bad for the FE. There's always the next tank to pin your hopes on :-|

First tank after Servicing car + oil change, mineral, of unknown grade (Authorized service station, not obliged to spell what they use, or it is french fries oil ) Aggressive EOC coasting probably getting the goat of my battery - the fuel meter is cheating me, glowing reserve LED earlier than my tank capacity, 9.25 gal before hitting reserve.

Used jackrabbit pulses, shifting @ torque peak (fortunately at 2700 RPM in my City's case). Following the shift points in the car owner's manual literally, works like charm!

Used normal 87 octane gas.
Tires @ 50 PSI, as usual.
Mixed Highway : city @ 3:5 ratio, roughly.
AC use: intermittent, a couple of times (getting hot here, 93 deg already today). Otherwise making do with windows cracked 1-1.5" for cross-ventilation.

MPGuino still sitting in the glove compartment, waiting to get its rightful place on the dashboard.

Started using both mirrors - felt blinded when driving with folded mirror on passenger side. AC off all the time with only 1 exception.

Main difference I made was to have jackrabbit pulses, restricting myself to one gear change in between, if at all. Used normal 87 octane gas. None the worse for it!

Proof: adjusting the nut behind the wheel yields maximum improvement!

93 Octane fuel, no additives yet (getting tempted to try out acetone 1 oz / gal), Mixed city / highway driving. Used aggressive FAS, but lost a few miles to ignorance about odometer not working when coasting in ignition OFF condition. No mods yet except chucked off the spare tire and folded passenger side rear view mirror.
