Hello -

54.4 MPG on the way home from work tonight. I was within striking range of my 57.3 max when I hit a slow-down at the 710-North to 10-East transition. At that point I lost at least 2 MPG. I don't think I would have broke my record for this route, but I would have been close.

I must admit everyday this new car continues to surprise me and increase in FE. This morning I hit a new one way commute high of 45.7mpg avg. Considering I have done nothing to this vehicle yet, I am still waiting for it to max out before I begin modding to see the true impact of the mods.

Overall though, I can't complain. I'm creeping up on the 60 day mark and already have near 6000 miles on it .. switching to synthetic oil this week.

Really wanted 60 mph on the way home from the DMV so I used aggressive P&G with EOC (no traffic) to get 61.07 mpg over the 2.4 mile trip.

Hello -

The radio told me about a crash on the 710 South, so I took my backup route :

Code:
10 East at Rosemead -> 605 South -> 105 West -> 405 South -> Off Freeway

53.7 MPG
42   MPH Average
61   MPH Max
0.7  Hours
2831 RPM Max
32.8 Miles
207  Water Temp Max
0.6  Gallons
The 42 MPH Average is misleading. I hit sub-10 MPH traffic jams on the 605 South. Normally the Semis take the 710 South, but it looks like a lot of them took the 605 South to avoid the accident. In general I hate the 605 because people drive too fast and it seems like I almost always hit a jam. Today was no exception.

Hello -

I took an alternate route to work today. Normally I avoid the 605 because the average speed is too fast (i.e. accident prone), which leads to lots of traffic jams. But, sigalert.com told me the way was clear so I rolled the dice :

Code:
ROUTE : 
210 East -> 605 South -> 105 West -> 405 South -> Exit Freeway 
=> Roughly 38+ miles
----
NET ELEVATION CHANGE : ~434 feet drop 
----
SCANGAUGE "CURRENT" READINGS : 
59.6 MPG, 
0.7 Gallons, 
204 Water Temp Max, 
38.3 Miles, 
2504 RPM Max, 
0.7 Hours, 
63 MPH Max, 
49 MPH AVG 
----
IAT READING : Hot Air Intake + dynamic grill block v3.0 led to 
Input Air Temp readings of around 120+ degrees F.
----
WEATHER(.com) : 
65 degrees F, 
Cloudy,
64.5% Humidity, 
52.5 degrees F Dew Point, 
30.0 in. Pressure, 
----
TIME : ~10:00 AM to ~10:42 PM (PST), ~42 minutes
I lost maybe 1-2 MPG at a 605-South traffic jam caused by a Caltrans far-left lane closure, but not enough to ruin the run. 59 MPG is a pretty good number. This implies that I could have a record run under goldilox weather/traffic conditions.

Where do you get your elevation change from, a GPS unit?

Those are some pretty good numbers. It's cool to think that you can go 38 miles with .7 gallons of gas - I mean, think of how far the average person could go with .7 gallons of gas, maybe like 20 miles or so.

I've been having to drive pretty long (100-120 mile) trips down route 17 in NY for the last week, so I've been learning the route more. At first, I was getting about ~44MPG, and then I had to rush back one day, so it was only 41-42, but the last trip, I got 47 going down and back up, so I'm pretty happy with that.
