All delivery miles and local personal use miles in the same general area. Reasonable amount of engine off coasting with some engine on coasting, DFCO and driving without braking thrown in for good measure.

After refueling, I found low tire pressures in 3 tires-again. I had wanted to check them mid-week but the Hess station I use with free air had it's filling thing stolen off the hose and it wasn't replaced until tonight. What can I say? I'm cheap and don't want to pay $0.75 to the other stations to use their pump when it's free at this one. As for the use, there was only city on this tank, no highway. The longest trip was to go junkyarding early in the week about 30 miles from home after which I got stuck in Clearwater's nasty rush hour traffic. The whole return trip was bumper to bumper and took over an hour. The rest of the tank was all pizza delivery. I also had an issue with the IAT sensor plug that is broken and does not like to stay in on this tank. I guess I'll have to fix it properly by soldering in a pigtail cut from another car. I used oodles of engine off coasting on this tank too as it really seems to help. I just worry about the 194,000 mile starter and ignition switch wearing out.

30% highway, 70% city. At the end of this tank, I changed the oil to 0W-30 Mobil 1 and will see how it affects future tanks. Also planned is a switch to Synchromesh in the transmission.

100% city delivery driving for this tank. Decided to keep the car now due to my economic situation changing. Also had Seafoam in the gas and oil during this tank as well.

I drove more aggressively on this tank to try and find the balance between fuel mileage and total number of deliveries. This may be the last tank though as the $250 a month that Progressive wants for delivery insurance on a Metro is high enough so as to negate any fuel cost savings.

Around 150 miles of highway driving is part of this tank. Did less EOC on this tank to try and get total number of deliveries up.

First 100% city tank. Found two tires with low pressure 3/4 of the way through the tank and filled them to 42 PSI-7 over max. Lots of EOC.

High temps in the mid 70's and lows in the 50's and 60's. Let two tires get low on air midway through the tank.
