So there's been several times now that I've driven to one destination, say 5 miles away, then drove 30 miles more to another destination, but the "Current" trip on the scangauge resets for the second trip. That whole second trip average could be as high as 40mpg, but my last fill was ~32. Does the first part of the trip with colder engine temps really hurt the tank that bad? I typically don't drive more that 8 miles at a time during the other 3 seasons, so I think my MPG averages will drop once my longer trips end this summer.
I think I need to be MUCH more conscious of my driving for the first few miles when apparently it matters the most.
Edit: I meant for that to say Cold in the title.. oops
