New high for commute to work - 48.2mpg!

On the way to work this morning, achieved my best ever commute.
52.53 miles
46.3 mph avg.
48.22 mpg
Drove 55 most of the time and EOC'd every chance I could. Here is a profile of my route showing the elevation change I go through every day. Home on the left and work on the right. 400'asl at the bottom of the chart and 1400'asl at the top.



Got to put on that front air dam and some rear skirts.

Very impressive for a ZX2! They're not underpowered vehicles at all.

Good job Sir! Skirts and AirDam helped me a bunch too.

More commutes like that will really pull up your average!

Nice work.
And, that's quite a bit of elevation change!

Hey good job man. Yeah the airdam should make a noticeable difference.

I can't see the graph and I don't have a GPS. But I bet you gain a lot going north between Elmira and Boyne Falls. 1400 ft to 700 ft in 7 miles. I'm curious, where is the 400 ft? That's 200 ft below Lake Michigan.

Hey Moorecomp, just got my best commute mpg's as well. They are just SGII readings, so I can't say they are 100% accurate, but they are the best yet for my commute. 58.8 to work, 57.2 to home Lean Burn is working quite well.
