new job, new commute, little lower MPG

I took on a new task with my company and my commute has gone from ~72mile round trip (all highway & no traffic), to a ~25mile round trip (city/highway mix & heavy traffic).

I was getting lazy with how easy my commute was, guess I have to re-learn all the tricks to keep my tanks up!

You use less gas right? I would be happy with that.

hockey4mnhs is right, i used to live in seattle where i got 45 mpg but filled up 4x a month, then i moved to philly where its 100% city and gotten less than 30 mpg, but i only filled up once a month.


in the long run, less mileage on car, less commute time, more $$ in pocket
