I'm driving with my battery pack removed from the car. I'm taking a serious hit right now plus highway driving.

At the moment, Team Honda is beating Team Metro.

Hey, were exceeding the 2025 fuel efficiency requirement of 54.5mpg fleet average!

We're definitely ahead of our time. And, we exceeded Team Metro by an even larger margin than before, and probably a few other marker points as well.

Currently we're at 57.03 mpg, and 62.77% over EPA. Nice.

It's even more impressive when you consider the fact that Team Honda is more than twice as big as any other team.

I'll probably join after this next fill up. This tank looks like it's going to be right on 50mpg, and I haven't tried any EOC yet.

Sorry to have brought down the overall Team Honda average, but as you can see on my latest fill-ups I've changed my driving habits and I'm up +7MPG so (crosses finger) here's to hitting 45MPG one day in the not too distant future.

I used to be a 'jack rabbit' but now with a more open work schedule and steady shift times, I can afford to leave earlier/drive slower-more eco minded/etc.

I'm back getting back into the swing of seeing my MPG bars climb

Sounds good. Don't worry too much about team average. We like to bring it up, but it is really about encouraging high FE efforts. The more the merrier!

Cool. Improvement is good! Good to hear from you.

NC is pretty warm this time of year really - I'm sure you need your a/c. I found that A/C draws lots of mechanical as well as electrical power. The electrical ultimately comes from your fuel so anything you can do to reduce a/c should help.

Ideas: collapsible silver reflectors for inside windshield - fold up into a circle. These really help me. Park with windows cracked 3/4 inch. Start drive with windows open to change out air. Wooden beaded seat covers are even cooler than cloth velour seats, under $15 at big box parts stores.
