Hello -

Another record :

Trip: home to work - 2009/02/20 - 62.0 MPG
Quote:
ROUTE : 10 West -> 710 South -> 105 West -> 405 South -> Exit Freeway => Roughly 27+ miles
----
NET ELEVATION CHANGE : ~210 feet drop
----
SCANGAUGE "CURRENT" READINGS :
62.0 MPG,
0.4 Gallons,
202 Water Temp Max,
27.4 Miles,
2198 RPM Max,
0.6 Hours,
55 MPH Max,
45 MPH AVG
----
IAT READING : Hot Air Intake led to Input Air Temp readings of around 125+ degrees F.
----
WEATHER(.com) :
67.0 degrees F,
Sunny to Partly Cloudy,
30% Humidity,
34.5 degrees F Dew Point,
30.08 in. Pressure,
----
TIME : ~11:50 AM to ~12:25 AM, ~35 minutes
----
RECENT CAR CHANGES : See http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...lugs-6920.html
----
HYPOTHESIS : VERY Goldilox traffic (not too pushy). Again, very compariable data to previous record. The last stretch on the 105 had traffic density slow enough to allow me to maintain my slower average speed. The irony is that when the traffic forces people to slow down but not go below 30 MPH, I gain MPG.
