Reflecting back via Fuel Log

It's amazing knowing that I have only been doing this for 4 months now and have seen the improvements that I have. Funnier yet is the fact that my first fuel entry reflected 146.2 miles which at that time represented a hair under half a tank for me and I would fill at that point for fear of not being able to make it to work and back the next day.

Now 146 miles leaves the needle between full and 3/4 ...

WOW what a difference .... Hopefully there are more stories like this out there ...

i went from abou 80 miles a quarter to about 120
with the old estof 21 highway my truck was rated at Manual: 306 mi. / 378 mi. mile to a tank. i do about 400 to just a little over 3/4 of a tank.
soi went from abou 275 in 3/4 to 400miles.......

another way to put it i went from 6 gallon a day to work 130ish miles to 4.5 gallons.

so that is awsome.

During the summer i have a 35 Mile commute (17.5 Mi each way)

Normally I would Fill up every Friday on the way home. That would make 5x35 miles + whatever around town stuff. so usually about 180-200 miles. That would put me around 1/4 tank left.

now, on this most recent tank i've made 8x35 (280 ish miles) mile trips, still sitting at half a tank

I'm tempted to fill up just to get the datapoint... and gas is 3.94/gallon
