Here is what a few degrees does for you. Lately, its been about 15F in the morning. I've been averaging low to mid 40s. Today it was 35F out and I got 47.4 mpg on the way in. Can't wait for even higher temps!

How's it going Mr Tim?

You still thinking of re-filling around the half tank mark?

Nah, I'm going all the way. I ended up using the Paseo a lot last week. I'm now down to just under 1/4 tank. The trip in today showed me 46.5 mpg on the scangauge. I didn't reset when I filled up, so I have no idea what the tank mileage is at.

Well, I decided to fill up on the way home today. It was a warm afternoon and this no EOC stuff is making the coolant fan run more than I'd like. It probably turned on about 6 times on the way home today. Ambient temp is around 57F.

Anyway, the fillup:
421.8 miles
8.9 gallons
47.4 mpg

Not too shabby. I honestly was expecting lower. The scangauge was definitely reading low.
