This tank I aimed for moderate hypermiling to match traffic a little better with very little EOC and mainly P&G.
My first half of the tank seemed to be headed for a 60 MPG tank as I hit 300 miles right at the halfway mark on the tank which seems to be almost exactly 5 gallons. This surprised me because I helped rescue a friend on the side of the road with a car load of stuff that I hauled back to their place on curvy back roads. The first half of the tank I would say was about 80 city/20 highway. the second half was about 40c/60h. I'm now starting to see how people do actually get better mileage off the highway. I also think that having my car loaded down seemed to help me get longer coasts. My P&G is also inconsistent since I'm so new to this. I started studying my BSFC today. Looks like P&G will work better with instrumentation. Can't wait to get a scangauge. As disappointing as this tank was, it's still way better than I was getting before hypermiling(avg 40-44mpg).

Mostly highway driving. Refilled early just as I entered a traffic jam and didn't want it to affect my tank MPG.
This time I ditched the acetone and just did speed reduction hovering around 55MPH. I found this safer the my previous 45 MPH and it seems to be even more efficient. Used a little less EOC than before but more pulse and glide. no instrumentation and a little lighter cargo. Ditched spare tire and musical instruments compared to last time.
Lastly, I pumped the tires up to 40psi about halfway through.

First highway roadtrip using hypermiling techniques and adding acetone to gas.
I was usually getting 40 city / 44 Hwy before I discovered hypermiling.
Drove 45MPH with hazards on the whole way and lots of EOC.
