WOT acceleration might save you a few minutes. Why not plan ahead and leave earlier?

I do leave 5 minutes earlier most of the time but I got held up a couple of times.

Hopefully my current tank will be 40mpg.

I bought my car (34/40) expecting to get an average of 35mpg, so i should be happy with my average of 40mpg. But it seems like i REALLY REALLY tried to incorporate changes to my driving technique... and it payed off, but only slightly.

normal driving when i got the car got me about 39mpg. My last fill up was 41.2mpg.

guess i should break down & get a scanguage as my next step?

I don't think you'll find anyone on this forum objecting to that advice, except maybe Compaq.

EDIT: looking at your gaslog, the car still has hardly any miles on it. It's also reasonable to expect it will improve a little more as the mechanicals break in.
