Nice work! Do you find that the Mirage could do with some taller gearing? Was this with the alternator turned off?

Yeah, the Mirage could definitely use taller gearing. It is nothing like the Insight. In fact, in the UK it does have slightly taller gearing.

The alternator was disabled for this trip.

My latest tank looks pretty funny. This tank included new LRR tires plus the alternator delete and lots more P&G due to California98Civic's 70 mpg challenge. My previous best tank was a respectable 51 mpg, and now it is a much improved 60 mpg!

My best tank looked like that too. Right after I got tires and then got in the accident and the car has been returning some spectacularly bad numbers... then again I’m not even really hypermiling at the moment either...
