Nice work, Bunger! What the heck are you doing? I'm with Kickflip: let's hear about your typical routes & techniques.

No 90 mpg tanks from me this year. I think that 80.x was my 2006 record. Falling temps are taking their toll around here...

Hey make sure you have the engine size set properly too! I think that affects the fuel usage plus if you are killing your injectors then that will really screw up the readings.

Did some Sunday cruzing around today and after 84.9 miles averaged 50.7mpg with a few stops along the way. Found that my left rear tire plug is working it's way out of the hole and had lost air - was down to 21psi again and not easy to notice at all - pumped it back up to 36.5psi - need to do an inside patch.

I have been playing with using different acceleration rates during my pulses. I have been using the Scanguage to let me know how hard I'm stepping on the gas. It seems that my mileage isn't as good if I accelerate at less than 75% throttle. 80-90% seems to be better yet. More testing to follow.
Here are my numbers for today. This morning's trip to take my wife to work was 32.5 and, from there to my work was 59.7. This afternoon, the trip to pick up the wife at work was 62.5 and from there to home was 54.6.

Larry: are you using a block heater? How come the first leg of the day is so much different from the others?

I have an engine block heater on order. It ships tomorrow and should be here by the weekend. It seems that they don't stock them until around the end of October.
The reason for the first leg being so low is that I coast in neutral without killing the engine so it will warm up. I found that with my temporary ride, in temps a bit higher than they are now, that if I did the EOC thing that my engine would not reach full operating temp even after going all the way to my work. Hopefully, after this week, I won't have to worry about that low first-leg mileage.

Are you guys checking the altitude when you make a 1 way trip and checking you mileage? A decrease in altitude will result in better gas mileage and an increase will result in lower mileage.

Why is that JanGeo? I have read that the exact opposite is true.

If the altitude is higher, that means you had to go uphill/climb. A decrease in altitude means you went downhill.
