we're talking combined right? I"m guessing somewhere around 31.76324 for a random guess. I think I'm gonna make my own ecomodder bumper sticker in one of my Cad/Drafting/industrial tech/printing class thingy's. To advertise, and let people behind me know what in the world I'm driving slow for.

It's going to be all sub/urban, I believe. He normally does a fair amount of highway, but not this week. If he does hit the open road, I'll let you all know so you can tweak your numbers at the last minute, if you want to.

28mpg

I'll assume that he isn't changing his driving habits due to the scangauge. Driving habits, cooler weather and short trips will combine for a 28mpg average. Plus 28 hasn't been taken yet.

I am guessing 28.5 if he continues with his driving habits.

I am guessing 35.2 if he takes notice of the scanguage and makes it a "game" to get higher numbers.

I can't say for sure if he will change his driving habits, but I seriously doubt it. (That concern was the original attraction to the idea of NOT telling him the SG was in the car, which I vetoed.)

That said, the ScanGauge isn't in view of the driver. It's stuffed into a closed change/sunglasses cubby.
