Part of it is that you're in Bozeman. My mileage has been consistently higher when we travel in Montana. The other part is probably that you are using good driving technique. Driving only 20 miles with just a partial load won't affect your full tank mileage reading much.

Good design is simple. Getting there isn't.

On this site, it means that you are off to a good start.
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.

I'll buy a second scan-gauge (or similar) only after it includes logging & wireless connectivity to a graphic display device.
Garmin is getting real close with the new ecoRoute device.
record the calibration percentages for each vehicle and make sure you change your engine size each car you swap to, i dont think theres a need to recalibrate each swap...
