40 MPG on winter blend!

Unbelievably, I attained 40.05 MPG on this last tank of winter blend gasoline! I didn't do anything different than I usually do...

Pump error? I dunno, I think

Pump error? I dunno, I think I'm gonna get wicked mileage on my next tank, did 150 miles of highway and got double the number of miles I usually get on the first quarter tank. Makes me want to take it out for an all highway tank to baseline it. The other time I made this trip I got 45 mpg and the rest of the tank was city.

After some aerodynamic

After some aerodynamic adjustments (taped off part of grill, removed passenger side mirror, turned in driver side (so i can flip it out if cops have issues)) and drove as granny like as possible and just last week attained best ever economy on my truck (24.5 mpg's). I also have decreased my Acetone additive to 2 ounces for that tank (average 15-17 gallons per fill) current tank has 3 ounces, as well as my normal additives of 10 ounces MMO and a tiny can of the Outlaw octane booster (required because of my chip, along with CA premium 91)

I know my weather here in SD is better than most of y'all but my best ever is my best ever

I want to do an all out

I want to do an all out highway run but it's really difficult. There is always someone who cuts you off or doesn't know where they are going.

I hope by spring to be in the high 40's.

I think this would be great fun to do. I may attempt it in the Summer. Atlanta has a perimeter highway [I-285] that is about 63 miles around. If I stay in the slow lane and drive the speed limit [55 mph], I may be able to get some great numbers.

My sweet spot is around

My sweet spot is around 55mph. But on the freeway I always drive 65mph.
