You should record your mileage!

That's really good, I wish I had a manual.


So does anyone have a Scangauge in their xB?
I was wondering if it's easy enough to install.

Can you plug in a toaster? Can you dial a phone? That's how hard a Scangauge is to install.

Haha thanks!

By the way my current tank is nearly out, but has 450 miles on it!

Wow. even 11 gallon will give you more than 40mpg. Can't wait to see your latest result.

But can I make it to the gas station? What an adventure!

This was with a forced trip through a drive through (the lobby was closed and we were hungry), many hills, more often than not passengers, open windows hurting aero, and only about 6 miles of EOC total.

Good luck. I hope you don't need to perform the ultimate EOC (pushing up to the hill top)

Hahaha.
Yeah I can go on a nearly flat 45mph road to one of the lower price Shell stations luckily, I could coast in neutral for the last mile unless somebody gets in my way.

Damn, I feel like a failure since my last (and best) tank was a mere 36mpg.

I have air-filter-cleaning stuff coming from Jegs tomorrow, though, so at the very least, that can't hurt (and it's long, long overdue-- I doubt the previous owners of my car have ever cleaned it). Hopefully, it gives me some gains, as my filter is pretty crusty.
