You brought the CRX back to school?

EDIT: Never mind. I see you're bringing it home again. I just remembered you were talking about how to get around the first-year students car ownership ban.

Had another record tank in the Civic - 514 miles! This translates to 42.4 MPG.

I got special permission to drive it up from break and back down at the beginning of winter break, shooting for the old 600 mile tank, we shall see, eh.

School first though, damn you finals.

So Ben: 62.3 mpg is swell. What kind of driving conditions, speeds & techniques? Give us some context!

Eh, lots of highway, 55-65, large hills/small mountains, 7.5 hours, not all that much to say about it.

My mileage drops off so suddenly at 65, it's silly, I was pulling 65 until we hit the 65 mph section of the drive.

50 psi in the tires, eh, lots of extra weight, no EOC (want the battery to stay charged because it was giving me trouble, on the way down I will).

I can't think of anything else, though it was swell, driving around home I did pretty well also, grille blocke I will attribute it to, but that's bs, of course.

The temps started out at 50+F this morning. I should have done some engine-off-coasting on the trip to the wife's work but didn't. I ended up with 38.2 for the 5.8 mile trip. From there to my work(~9.6 miles) I ended up with 55.2. The return trip to the wife's work this afternoon came in at 58.3 and from there to home was 58.3 as well. The return trip home was a bit longer because I went the back way but it is less traveled. The route is just a smidge under .5 miles longer but I end up with 2-3 mpg better than when I take the usual route.

I just realized i am #12 for percent over the EPA. So close to the top ten! I might have to try a bit harder.

My car is so junky too. I think if i had an alignment/ my check engine light would stop going on/ and my transmission would stop slipping i might actually get some good gas milage.

Hopefully my next car is in good running condition.
