Not sure what this means?

ONCE MORE with more accurate (more conservative) calibration of fuel use and distance: 70.2 MPG over 127 miles. Half with spoiler on, second half without it but with somewhat more aggressive hypermiling.

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Wife and kid will be off in a couple of days and I will go to pick them up in a week. I will try to achieve 3.3 liters then.

Need some wheel covers and skirts for the rear. If i can do those i believe I will be set.

On one section of the trip i saw 3.9 l/100 km.

Also i might try to boost the battery, charge it constantly from a big battery that I have. As my caps got stolen at the customs it will have to do for now.


I will also cheat a bit. Refuel 50km in to the trip after the engine is warm and I am on the highway and then refuel 20km before so that I do not get in to city traffic.

teoman - you should add your car to the garage, so we can see what you're driving (it puts it under your username).


Your Garage: [ Add new vehicle ]



I probably knew what it was at one time, but my brain is turning to mush!
