Best day so far, 55%
My 2006 corolla is rated at an average 31mpg. Today's mix of highway and city driving resulted in 48.1mpg.:thumbup:

I'm excited because I was really having bad luck and hit every red light during the city section. Next stop, 50mpg.

wow! that's exceptional.

What sort of hypermiling are you doing and what changes have you made to the car? I assume it's a stickshift?

It is a 5spd manual. Driving 55 instead of 65, light foot all the time, coasting, and a kiwi mpg to monitor the fuel. (Confirmed accuracy at the pumps)
Tires are at 40psi (max sidewall lists 36)
I haven't tried EOC yet, and don't shut the engine off at stoplights, so there is plenty of room for improvement.

This is our primary car, and I haven't quite convinced the wife to let me make any changes to it, aside from putting up with my driving. :turtle: (At least ones she can see!)
