I can now join Matt. I broke

I can now join Matt. I broke the 40 mpg barrier! My tank for last weeks driving was 40.6 mpg. This may kind of screw things up for the pill test. Oh well, I'm not going to complain. It doesn't look like the pill experiment is goiing to happen anyway.

On Saturday my Pt Crusier

On Saturday my Pt Crusier said it was 78 degrees. I had to turn the air conditioner on low in the car it was such a heat wave. The 36 hours later or so it was 20 degrees. Typical IOWA

Which reminds me.... Those of us with AC should turn in on during the winter for at least 10 minutes each month. Keeps the system bearings and seals lubed up. Personally I don't use AC, but since my car has it, I plan on keeping it functional for possible resale. Otherwise I could lose like 50-100lbs I would guess.

The cold weather came back

The cold weather came back yesterday, 20-30F below what we enjoyed last week. What a huge impact on FE last night on the way home, 53.5 vs 60 just the day before. Same cold and windy weather forcated for the next 7 days. There goes my nice tank.

Punxatawney Phil predicted this. It appears that he is right once again.

Canadian Rockies

I'm headed to the Canadian Rockies tomorrow for a vacation (Calgary/Banff), so we'll probably run into some snow (hopefully). Doing the rental car analysis will be interesting with the Litres per Kilometer and the price differential, but we'll see how it goes. I still have the PT Cruiser Turbo Convertible to enter and the Infiniti FX-35. They both got the same mileage. It's sad really. I think I'm going to skip out on the Malibu V-6 LT Sedan, since I only drove it 17 miles (unfair analysis) and I can almost guarantee that it'll be back. Anyways, I'll be around tomorrow morning, then back Tuesday. Speed cameras are legal up there, so we'll see how that goes too ;-)

OH NO< MORE SNOW

So, much for the 'spring time weather' here just north of Philadelphia, Pa. Got cold and windy. Snow in the forcast for tommorow morning. Can tell already (at half tank of fuel) that my mileage isn't anywhere near last tank.
I assume it's all cars and not just the Metros that really just do NOT like the cold. I think it may be a 10mpg+ difference for me. I will know in a day or so when I fill up. (Don't have the benefits of OBDII Scangauge capabilities).
What differences in MPG do everyone else experience from approx 60F to 20F-30F???
Is it as drastic as mine???
