another yaris noob

i've always been interested in fuel economy and decided to purchase the new toyota yaris last november after getting less than stellar economy with my 96 plymouth breeze.
the yaris is a great little car, i have no complaints so far.

check out my gaslog, i've been keeping records of mileage almost since the car was new and i spent some time today converting litres and kilometres into u.s miles and gallons.

I love your avatar! BTW, the breeze really sucks, mwahaha, I hate that car.

Got any pictures of the car? What's the color?

(i'm an illustrator, so i illustrated my avatar)

mine is silver, the lighter silver that is available in canada. it was the only colour available at the time. i haven't really taken any pictures of it, but tomorrow, i will post some.

yeah, the breeze was not a great vehicle, it was a cheap used ride at the time i bought it and i shouldn't complain- it had a lot of miles on it when i got rid of it.

Welcome schmeep! Excellent to see another Canuckistani on board again (we lost a good one a while back).

Breeze to Yaris. Nice move.

Are you ScanGauge equipped?

I think they're $160-ish US for the 2nd version. The original ones can be had on eBay for closer to 100 (last I checked - they may be less, now that the new version is out).

You'll find most folks here highly recommend having one. Instant feedback is what will enable you to take your FE to the next level. Just depends how far down the rabbit hole you want to go.

yeah, they seem like a great idea, i know that i don't always have the best driving habits (for fe anyway) and that might smarten me up.

are they accurate?
