I know this is a coming a bit late but one thing you can advise your friends, family and spouses to improve MPGs is remove junk that you do not need to be carrying around with you...it's a simple and easy way to improve FE and increase space in the vehicle

Adjusting the "nut behind the steering wheel" can make an even bigger difference in MPG.

It's been over four years lol

I like the thread, though. I can not wait to see my wifes next tank of fuel, the SC has said over 30 for all of her trips, she may have a better tank than me. My fill up is tomorrow night, hopefully fuel stays under 3.6.

Family and friends getting involved makes me happy
