Aww geez, I really should be riding to school if I am supposed to be training for this Josh Billings bike race, huh. And since everyone else is doing it. Well, it's 28 miles each way. Lotta hills. So maybe not. But if you factor in distance traveled by bike into your overall MPG, well, if you can't reach that lofty goal by mods and slow driving, then achieve it by cycling! Think of it as extended engine off coasting. Except it's not really coasting. More like extended huffing it.

Well, even if you don't quite make it, it was a great idea and a very worthy goal. I just may have to take this up sometime.

So... I refueled today. But I'm going to try and not use up the remaining .8 gallons. I think I'm down to .5ish after today's events. With a full tank of fuel, the sense of urgency is no longer there.

But, the good news... I've never gone 450 miles on a tank Now I need to figure out a new goal

Metrompg seems to be the king of the high mpg/gasoline rationing category.

He has used under 25 gallons so far this year!

That is a neat idea.

I estimate mine at 168 gal/Year (still way too much) ,

Which is down from 437 gal/year last January (traded in for the metro and learned how to drive again),

And down from 936 gal/year 5 years ago (moved 15 miles closer to work and was driving big old sloppy cars at the time)

So I still use way too much, but a decent trend, and I'm thinking real hard about how to take another chunk out of my consumption.

It looks nice when you graph it


national average in 2004 was 464 gal/year ( http://www.energy.ca.gov/gasoline/st...er_capita.html )
