The tank is about 10.4 gallons, so I'm guessing around 45 mpg. Not bad!

And Scangauge ll will be my next purchase for my car. Can't wait to start using it.

Do you usually note the exact gallons pumped? You should do that -- Take your receipt! You'll need that info to calibrate the gauge too.

I see. I remember it took 10.4 gallons to fill up earlier this afternoon. I'll keep a more accurate log in the future.

Nice, definitely keep a fuel log with a small pocket size note book with the date, gallons filled, and trip mileage per tank. The fuel log is also a great way to track maintenance like when you do oil changes and the air filter.

Seriously though if you ever want to get rid of those heavy chrome wheels I'm down the street from you lol

Not chrome, just polished
Only about 8lbs a wheel.

Nice result at the pump!

Polished Mugen RNR wheels - Someone on the Fit forums is selling a set. I'd love them, but they're too pricey for my budget. You just about can't find a lighter wheel, for any price.

Somehow, I suspect Chrysler Kid knows this.

If it hasn't already been mentioned you can swap clusters to gain the tach. Don't worry about the miles on the cluster you pick up because you can swap out just the speedometer assembly and keep your miles in tact.

I really don't know much about wheels, figured they were rota reproductions as the real deal is crazy expensive.

Yeah know about the cluster swaps, but if rather keep it original. Plus, Scanguage can provide that for me too.

And yeah they're Mugen wheels. There are slight cosmetic differences between these and the Rota Group N's. And I actually paid about the same for these wheels as a new set of Rotas.
