I just noticed your location. What (general) part of Dallas are you? I'm 2.5 hours east of you.

I just started to keep one on a notepad in the car. I'll start doing one here too.

I actually lived in Longview for 2 years finishing up school. Now I'm in the Allen area finishing up my last 4 weeks. Where in East TX are you?

Haha! Longview. Came here for college and stayed.

I've got family in Wylie, not far from you.

Very cool!
Well just wanted to update my progress so far. Today I just hit half a tank of gas at 273 miles. I can't believe the difference my driving style is making. Driving how I was last month, I'd have about a quarter tank or less left.
I will update with my final number at my next fill up. (If that ever happens haha)

Scangauge or Ultragauge should both be able to display a tach on your car.

Now that you have a full tank to report, start a fuel log.
