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!
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.
