Thanks for the encouragement...
Actually, I've had the car for almost a year now, it's got about 23,000 km on it. I found the FE picked up after my first oil change at 8,000km.
Alot of us on yarisworld.com were worried about the actual FE numbers not being too great in the beginning, but it is truly amazing how much simple driving techniques and just basically slowing down and not being in such a rush will help your numbers.

Oh yeah I forgot they were there before here in the USA and in Europe for about 6 years? Yeah the big thing is coasting and running with a ScanGauge that really shows how the engine is using fuel. My xB is just now starting to idle at 0.1gph more often with 7900 miles on it and that really rackes up the mileage when I coast - 10mph gets me 100 mpg!

Posted a few tanks in the gaslog. I have driven 1900 miles in the past 6 days. Not much time for GS or anything else. Still don't have much access to the internet yet. Hopefully by the end of the month.

my last tank is really ****ty. I can't get off the pedal. I'll have to get a SG2 to keep me in check.

I have some numbers from my new ride. It is a '99 Saturn SL2 DOHC 1.9L with a 5-speed manual. I always new that the DOHC Saturns always got lower FE but never knew exactly why; now I know. The DOHC cars have lower gearing in the transmission. My temporary ride(SOHC) would run ~2500 rpm's at 70mph and the new car runs at ~3000 rpms. So it looks like highway speeds are definately going to be a killer. It also means that I will have to work much harder to get good FE numbers at the slower speeds around home. Now for the numbers. This morning's trip to take the wife to work started out at 42 degrees and I never did any FAS so I could let the engine warm up for my trip to work and I ended up with 36.8 to the wife's shop. From there to my shop was 58.1. In the afternoon I got 64.6 going back to pick up my wife and, from there to home, I got 52.3.

yeah the sl2 has the "performance/bad fuel economy" transmission. You can check out the gear ratios here(I know there is a better page out there but I can't find it):

I may have to swap the transmission from the dead car when I ever get the $$'s to do it.

yeah Larry that transmission needs to be swapped. This is one of the reasons I looked for a dx model for my car instead of a ex model. Hope you swap it soon because you're not going to get far from your old car's mpg numbers.

Intresting. What's your average speed now?
