Smile I HIT THE Trifecta ( of sorts)

after some trials and changes - I think i have setteled into a pretty decent groove. My past 3 tanks have all been over 33 MPG including my highest "Commute" tank of 33.9.
( I have a 36 MPG tank but that was an a-typical drive (Road trip))

Looking back over a year ago - the same 3 tank timeframe was an average of 31. so my driving adjustments have netted 2 addl MPG (+6%)

I am not to sure how much more i can adjust the nut behind the wheel. My "streach" goal I was hoping to squeeze a 35 MPG tank on my typical commute. as the weather has hit the warmest part of summer, my PM commute is the warmest it can get

But i am tickled that i have hit a trifecta of 33's!!!!

I may have to look into WAI / grill block next, see if i can get the WARM up faster and get a little more out.

You're well over EPA, so I would say you're doing a pretty great job of it as it stands
