filled early to make sure to get gas while it is cheap

Also had this gas in the tank for A LONG TIME. long enough that my car actually started to run bad, because it had rained almost every day, and i believe somehow water was getting into the fuel lines causing it to miss.

Filled on my way home from work because i found gas 20 cents cheaper than everywhere else. Pump turned off at 3.4, then filled to 3.8. I almost stopped there, but then decided to try to get more in, so my next tank may be higher.

This was my test tank to and from work. I raised that hatch as close to aerodynamically as possible. Then drove to archbold(where i work) and back, and made my usual stops. the only difference was that the return trip is usually at night, so i have my headlights on, which i did not do on the way back. (forgot)

Also, this is with NO pulse and glide on the highway, only in town. Also did a small amount of engine braking in town because my brakes are getting bad.

Edit: filled monday morning, and it was very low. so this is that fill included

Decided to start filling up every monday before I go to work, and at the end of every week. That way i will be able to start finding the best way to get to and from work for better MPG. the reason i fill on monday is so that any driving over the weekend, or evaporation from sitting, is not effecting the numbers. This tank was the monday feel from weekend driving.

ran out of gas 1 mile from station. Put about .4 gallons in that i had with me. Since i am not positive, this is an estimate on the actual fuel used. it could be +-.2 gallons

On the plus side, the rear skirts are still on with only duct tape, but just. Need to redo them soon.

Also put on my partial belly pan this tank.
It was very windy most of this tank, and rained a bit.

P&G to work every day, 27 miles one way. But then on the way home, at night my alternator squeals and I have to drive like a normal person to keep it from doing so. Most of the first 400 or so of this tank, i had the wipers off to see if it would help. Not sure if it did.

This is testing new wheel skirts. IT WAS NOT A PROPER TEST BY ANY STANDARD. All i did was install them, filled, drove to the next town and back, then filled. Very strong headwinds on the way there. Will be making a longer trip tonight.

Drove Home. Tried to either draft or drive about 55 the whole way. Did have about 70 miles i was able to P&G while drafting a Semi truck. 60-68, then 58-65, then 55-62. I think it helped, but not as much as it could have if i killed the engine on the glide.

Drove home 210 miles. Late night, with no one to draft off because it was Christmas eve. Then drove around while home for a few days. Filled up right before the 210 mile drive back, which will be the next record. Same date, but changing them so it will not conflict on this site. Real date is 12-29-12

First fill up. All delivery mostly.

tested the trip distance vs. gps. 220 miles trip = 215 miles GPS. Going to try to remember to adjust before putting on site. Its only a .9774 difference but i still want to be correct.
