Recently got back from a trip from Vermont to Arkansas. On the way there, I pulled an empty trailer with a target speed of 65mph, and averaged around 60mpg. On the way home I was following my grandparents at ~75mph, and had a fully loaded trailer (maybe 500lbs of musical equipment and books, plus some weight in the car), and averaged ~56mpg.

Today I drove around an hour to Walmart, set the cruise control to 50, cracked the windows, and averaged 97mpg without any EoC or finessing the throttle. It's good to be home.

Averaged a tad over 51 mpg in the ZX2 going to work and back yesterday. This morning I had my best commute to work yet - 50.9 mpg - and that is with some sloppiness during the last leg of my route

Fitted 14" steel wheels to UFI.

For a car that's universally berated for poor MPG, I can't complain about the 70MPG US round trip number I'm seeing. Can't wait to see what the tank gets

Had an annoyingly bad delay this morning, so I compensated by running at 80 when I hit the interstate. Cheerfully enough, I was getting around 30 mpg when hills and drafting didn't affect things.

In my Subaru, 30ish was Olympic level numbers.

I was a bit shocked to see a 42mpg half tank when I filled up today...I had made a few trips into downtown SF, where traffic basically doesn't move and stop signs at the bottom of steep hills ensure you waste all the energy spent getting up the hill. I was also stuck in traffic on the freeway for over an hour this week.

I'm guessing it was just error, the pump doesn't stop at the same level every time. My previous tank only "got" 36mpg which was really low considering I did almost no city driving and was shutting the engine off diligently.

I think I got 58.5 MPG on a trip into town the other day. It has been close to 110F here lately so it is like having a heater on every part of the drivetrain.

Got the calcs completed for the first week of commuting.

Covered 242 miles, averaged 63.04pmg (52.49US), at 35p per litre, its an average of 1.22 per day in fuel.

Even adding on car tax, insurance and servicing, plus parking costs the total commute average was 3.70 per day.

A day return ticket is 12.30 on the train, and a weekly pass is 50.60

So I'm saving 8.60 over a day ticket or 32.10 over a weekly pass

We traded cars yesterday.

I filled up on Friday while doing errands on the way home. I never get great mileage on that stretch and I had the AC on, so I had 40 mpg on the tank when I got home. Then on Monday I had to bring her car into the shop so we switched cars for the day. I cranked it this morning and sat there, engine running and not even hearing what the kids were saying, just staring in disbelief. Tank mpg was 33.X with 200 and some odd miles DTE. I cycled through the car's display and saw the tank had only 134 miles on it.

This is not going to be a good tank.

Still above EPA highway, but that's not the point.
