I was happy to get 30mpg in the Mazda this afternoon (with an already warmed up car) driving the 4 miles to the library and back.

It really illustrates the hit that temperature and traffic has on economy since my wife struggles to get better than 22mpg in the morning taking the kids to school.


I think, therefore I doubt.

It takes me 5/more miles for my Taurus to get warmed up in the winter, but only 3 miles in the summer

Winter is almost over. I had to make a trip to Boston with the GF and her car. Didn't need either the heat or the a/c. The gas mileage is improving. Her 07 Impala with the 3.5L V6 VVT motor got 34mpg on the straightaway's consistantly at 65mph but then city traffic trashed the mpg down to 30mpg average for the entire trip. I guess that's the best it's geared for. At least it was a comphy ride.
