Got 71mpg over 634 miles. Had fun slogging through snow and brine covered roads in the NC mountains on Easter weekend, which I'm sure did wonders for my mileage. I had 2 people ask me about my car today, one of them asked if it was an electric car and the other was interested in aerodynamics and was asking me questions about the car.

You have a very impressive gaslog. Years ago I rode a CB125 Honda motorcycle at the speeds you drive and got worse mileage.

I did get a ticket for 78 mph on the little motorcycle and later wished I had kept a copy of it .

100 mpg (US) on a round trip to pick up a spare transmission mount from the red ForkenSwift (to send to a guy making a 3-wheel project car).

5*C, light winds (6 km/h), patchy drizzle, back roads

Mostly rural, with sub/urban on either end. No EBH. 2nd - 3rd P&G.

46 mph max, 24 avg. 46 mi total.

Take it with a grain of salt - I never adjusted the SG after last tank.

Metro you been really out there on the segments since the challenge. I know the SG was off about 10% from last fill but what's it showing for the tank. The suspense is killing me.

Tank is showing 85-ish.

Had another trip to make after supper, which was also mostly rural but didn't require me to drive through town first.

106 mpg (US) round trip; 25 mph avg.; 41 max; 17.6 miles total. I loved the return leg, which was slightly downhill - it was 114 when I turned in the driveway. Same thing: P&G using 2nd & 3rd gear. (That's as slow as I can tolerate.)

Must be the engine oil. I changed it this afternoon after the first trip. Couldn't find 0w-20, so used 0w-30 instead.

You know.. maybe that other website was right and I should have gone with straight 50 weight! Imagine the numbers I would have seen if I'd done that!

51.6 mpg trip to school (using the TC Highway route, not the Assiniboine route). Mild 12*C outside.
First time ever where I've gotten over a 50mpg trip on my short 3 mile commute to school. Too bad classes are now over !
