another day

Another trip from home to office today getting 50.4mpg bringing the tank average up to an even 40.0mpg for a bit over half a tank used. 45.0mpg for the day with several stops. I am seeing 230-260mpg coasting at 25-30mph engine idling now which I have not seen until this tank of gas. Usually I only get 130-150mpg.

Any guess on what to contribute to the high idle FE.

have no clue . . . it still idles high 750-890 when it is getting these high numbers almost like it is having trouble burning clean so it gives it more gas. I need to check the accuracy of the temp sensor too to make sure the 182-186 temps I get are accurate. Only once in a while will I see the idle come down to 650 rpm usually when the engine is about 170 degrees and still warming up. It may be the Synlube getting the engine so loose and friction free that it can't get the idle any lower.

yeah that method works well, its just the cars behind me prevent me from implementing it fully even though the light ahead of us will turn red from green!

whatever

Anyway, I love you for giving me hope metro, I drove a stick celica today (for work) it was so easy, I can't believe stick shifts are normally so easy, I hate my mom's car.
Excellent progress Ben! Dump the auto and watch it soar!

ROFLMAO!

Between Project KDA and the E-ELD technique, I am toast!

Even more reason to push that envelope. I have noticed recently that the envelope seems to be made of a very durable rubber like substance. I just cant break through. It just keeps pushing back....

Morning temps in the 30's for the last 2 days are killing me. Hoping for low to mid 60's again this tank.
