Today I did 77.5 MPG (US) | 3.04 LHK on my new commute to work. It is 100% city and 7.5 miles (going to work and return to home). 4 stops & 8 circulation lights. Best so far on that commute, it is only the 3rd time I do it so I will get really better MPG soon .

100% P&G

Keep going! There is quite a learning curve on this car. I would have been happy with 77 when I had it as long as you. Now that I have learned to drive it better, I am almost averaging that for the tank. 75.3 mpg with 4 bars left on the fuel gauge. I don't mean that as a brag; that is for an idea of what you have in store. I haven't even heavily modded it yet. The OBDII C&C is the most important just because I can reset the state of charge to avoid forced charge when I don't want it and force it when it is more advantageous. I also have a dumb grid charger that I can use to balance my pack and recharge it when I park it with a low battery. I still need to install my block heater and MIMA. I figure those will get me above 80 in the summer. Beyond that I would need more/newer battery. Still, have fun and ride the lean burn wave, brah.

Thank you! Best so far is 87.8 MPG (US) | 2.68 L/100 Km returning from the SMCC Economy Run 2013. For now I'm at ~600 miles on my tank and averaging 73.3 MPG! I REALLY want that MIMA thingy, its so cool!
I will buy the Potenza RE92 soon, so my next tank will be way better!

Broke two time my personnal best this week!

On tuesday I did 82.0 MPG on the FCD on my commute to work and back to home.


And wednesday I did 84.3 MPG on the FCD on the same commute + going to Yvan des pneus.


I took an apointement friday next week to swap my winter tires for 4 new Potenza RE92 P165/65R14. Hope this will bring me up in the 80 MPG for my next tank. Still averaging 73.5 MPG at 661.8 mi / 3.2 LHK at 1065.6 km, 1/20 bar on the fuel gauge, fuel pump light is lit. I will probably fillup when I change my tires.

I will put the 2 EcoModders stickers I have soon, hope this improve MPG as well. I don't know if this is placebo, but when I wear my EcoModder t-shirt, I tend to get slightly better MPG too!

Random picture of the car :
