Welcome, sliding doors are great when you're in a cramped parking space too

Doesn't look like he's posted since last year ('08), but he's still updating his fuel log:

Not quite up to his goal of 34 or 35 mpg in summer driving...

But his last entry suggests he's got a ScanGauge (first calibration was last fill up), so if that's the case, I bet things are about to get better.

Mazda 5

Good numbers, consistently 3-4mpg better than what I'm getting with a 5 speed auto but mine are 100% city and it only has 6900 on the clock. What ratio are you for hw/city and havce you seen improv with increased miles? I notice today that my wife really guns the hell out of it....can't say a word though, you know how it is.
