After 2 38's and a 39mpg tank, I had 3 37's in a row, and then a 35 I checked my tires, and they did drop a bit to 37psi from when I filled them to 39. SO yea, they may account for a little, but my diligence has fallen off. Really, 35 is still 10 mpg above what I used to get, so its nothing to sneeze at...

Got a wild hair and decided to drive with the fastest weekend traffic when I headed home from work this afternoon. 52 miles on I-26 going mostly at speeds of 75-80mph. I bet the 67mpg that I got on this segment beat the mileage anybody else in the fast lane was getting, especially the Hummer that I distance drafted for a few miles (talk about a good wind block).

basjoos, you not only beat everbody individually, you probaby got better mileage than the next top 3 added together.

56.5 Mpg

Hello -

This is not as good as my personal best (58.6 MPG), but it shows that I am in the same ballpark for summer. I am no longer counting my "IAT resistor" MPG as a personal best because I failed to verify the accuracy of the scangauge under that circumstance. I want to record this MPG as a current baseline for installing the EFIE.

MPG : 56.5
Route : 10 West -> 710 South -> 105 West -> 405 South -> Exit Freeway
Miles : 27.8
MPH Avg: 49
MPH Max : 63
RPM Max : 2589
Gallons : 0.5
IAT Reading : Hot Air Intake led to Input Air Temp readings of around 130 degrees F.

Net Elevation Change : ~210 feet drop

Weather(.com) :
Temperature : 85 degrees F
Description : Sunny/Fair
Humidity : 38.5% Humidity,
Dew Point : 44.5 degrees F
Time : ~11:10 AM to ~11:40 AM, ~30 minutes

Recent Car Changes : None really. I am using FFT (until the bottle goes empty).

Hypothesis : Hot dry weather and good traffic. Except for one rubberneck section where some cops were on the side of the road, traffic was just Goldilox (not too fast, not too slow, just right). If it had been as dry as my previous run (10.5% humidity then versus 38.5% humidity today), then this might have been the same or better MPG. That run was on March 12, 2007, so maybe there was a Santa-Ana condition at that time. Can't remember.

Posted a tank of 42.9 mpg today. I tanked this tank by playing with the wrong end of the tach last friday on the way home from work. Then get hit with two days of head winds on the drive home.

OOOO well
