Cool Next tanks MPG's, place your bets!

this is from my best tank ever which was 30.5mpg..

heres a continuation of last nights fuel log. 03-01-08
I think I'm going to beat the hell out of my 30.5mpg record!

I'm pretty far into this tank currently mile wize than I was from the same basic mark... currently the needle is a little more full than the dark picture above..


any estimates on my mpg? place your bets!

So far the way I'm achieving this is by not using ANY cruise control...

It fluctuated too much and the vac guage I mounted was going nuts..
So I drive the old fashioned with just my foot to meter my vac readings..
I watch both speedometer and vac guage and keeping it in the green economy section of the vac guage.. (Autogage by autometer)

I have noticed my truck seems to like 60mph as opposed to 55mph..

I've done alot of in town driving this tank.. I'd say about 50/50

currently.. (no cel, ignition on, not running)

32.3

I was thinking of doing a "Price is Right" 32.9 on Who, but I controlled myself. Yeah, a "smart foot" beats CC any day.

I actually made a quick video to post on youtube about driving with a vacuum guage..

I'll also drop the ecomodder.com within the search
