Talking 100 mpg

Yeah, I was going to put this in the daily FE thread, but then I deemed it threadworthy on its own. I've been scratching this itch since I realized it was possible, and after supper today I pulled out the stops and headed out to do the city loop: 101 mpg

Metro, welcome to the 100 MPG club! Us triple digiters have to stick together. And what makes it even more remarkable is that you did it with non-hybrid technology. This is truly a feat of technical driving excellence!

Tank Average

To bring up the average of the tank I suppose...What is your average miles per gallon for a tank?

100mpg

Congratulations!

Now how many MPG per lb does that come out to . . .

I hope you guys don't mind me (constantly) mentioning my 40mpg tank average in a Scion xB which is way bigger than what you all are driving.

Oh yeah and I added a photo of my honda to my avitar.

Thanks, I didn't even know there was a club. So where are the snacks at?

I've been waiting specifically for a 100+ round trip before posting this thread. I've already seen a bunch of 100+ one-way segments (125 is the highest one-way segment I've seen), but one-way isn't quite as demanding as getting home again with a good number.

tomauto's on the right track: to figure out how to improve my highway FE so my tank averages don't get killed by road trips. Either that or do an entire tank of city driving. Man... that would take forever at 100 MPG. That's 1000 miles.

My 3-tank average is 59.3. It should rise to low 60's with the next fill-up.

JanGeo - that's an inspired question!

I'm surprised nobody's come up with that yet. Speed performance enthusiasts love to talk power to weight. We should be comparing FE to weight. I'm going to start a thread right now...

MetroMPG thats amazing. Before long you'll be making gas in the old Blackfly. If your gas gauge goes down someones probably siphoning it out.

Speaking of decimals, zpiloto (reference to the MPG to weight thread), notice that the ScanGauge drops the 10ths above 100 MPG. That kinda bites.

Too bad this wasn't a Canadian or British/Commonwealth web site. We'd be celebrating 100 mpg (Imperial) earlier and more often!
