Argh. He's got his car back now so that shouldn't happen again. I also now have the kill switch installed so watch out!

Now my city driving is vastly better than highway driving. What a change over my Contour. Auto trans is hard to get good mileage over long distance in the city for me anyway. This standard trans car is awesome!
Nice job pletby!

55.44 mpg-US over a distance of 923.5 km/573.84 mi.

Right now we're a measly 0.09 mpg behind Team Metro. Of course if they pick up one more car with a standard tranny, we're toast. One of their 3 cars has a slushbox tranny and only gets about 40-ish mpg.

I'm still chugging away at my record tank. 911 miles and 93.3 mpg right now, 1/4 tank still to go. I started on July 5th and I should be done in about 2 weeks. Aiming for 1250 miles.

You should leave a camcorder running on one of your trips. There's very little info on hypermiling instructional videos to be found on Youtube. I only ever found one by some guy in London trying to help out his taxi cab friends. The rest are very uninformative.

How do you keep getting such good incremental improvements without significant modifications to your car? Are you pushing that thing around or what? Flux capacitor? Seriously, can you share your knowledge/techniques with the rest of us?

Andrew, what's the average speed of the current tank? Do you keep track of that on the ScanGauge?

~22 mph. My route is a mix of speed limits from 35 mph to 55. I do 25-40 p&g exclusively, except for some downhills where I'm up to 50 and some hilltops and stop approaches where I'm just creeping along. My route is specifically chosen for low traffic single-lane and busier but multi-lane roads to allow such without being a bother to traffic.

One incremental improvement over last year's 88 mpg tank is higher LOD pulses. Thanks to Sentra's testing I'm now pulsing at 88-90 LOD instead of 80. My daily driving results agree with his scientific test results.

I also removed 25 lb of "junk" for this run. Owner's manual, jumper cables, ice scraper and gloves (it's summer, right?), floor mats, years of insurance papers, etc. The spare and jack are still in place.

Thanks!

Incidentally, @ ~20 mph (trip average) the Firefly/Metro is good for ~100 mpg with pulse & glide.

I haven't been tracking average speed in the Insight -- the OEM fuel economy gauge is so good, I don't normally have a ScanGauge in the car. I really should, if only for the speed data.

Thanks. I'm trying to figure out how to get the best P&G (I mostly do engine on glide) using the lean burn in my VX. It seems to work well trying to keep it just at the point where it is about to drop out of lean burn mode so the pulses don't take forever but I still get the advantage of lean burn. I'm not sure if that is best or not. I don't believe I have any way to get an LOD number since I only have an MPGuino. I did just get a vacuum gauge but have not installed it as of yet. I'm not sure if that will help me much or not but I'm anxious to see what's going on once it is up and running.
