Less high-traffic commutes than normal.
Two one-hour per way trips to the shore certainly contributed to the higher MPGs as well.

This tank represents a frustration with changing my driving behavior. I reverted back to more aggressive speeds and acceleration.
The previous tank was going great, I'd estimate 42 MPG, until I ran into two days of bumper to bumper traffic. That really hurt my average MPG for the tank.
This demonstrates two things for me:
1: I need more than just behavioral changes to increase my gas mileage.
2: Society needs more than just behavioral changes to increase their gas mileage, as there will always be traffic jams.

This tank I attempted driving more efficiently. A lot more coasting, coasting earlier, and WOT to top speed but shifting at the lowest possible RPM. Seemed to work well, as previous MPG for the last 6 months have been in the 29-32 mpg range. However i do feel a little like I am suppressing my urges for quick acceleration. We'll see if i get used to it.
