Awesome!! I think I could get over 900 per tank on a regular basis if I was the only one driving Helga... My wife typically gets 40 - 45 mpg along the same route where I get 55 - 60mpg. But we have to share so the best I can do is gently encourage her to do better...

Hope you made it... !

I made it thankfully, and got a nice surprise too. I ended up with 957 miles on this tank and filled with 15.07 gallons. Vented and filled-MPG calculated by hand says I got 63.5 MPG. Looks like my goal needs to be 1000 miles on the next tank for sure. If I can progress some of my upcoming modifications(Dewar based thermal storage unit) I may see some further improvement too.
