But enough about my problems. Congratulations Metro!
Percentage wise your still the king. Congrates Metro you are really posting amazing numbers. Methinks the top of the mountain is still a good ways in the distance.

Congrats Metro!

Congrats Darin! You definately motivate us to accel...uh...I mean coast!

I have been coasting more than ever since the skinny 'trailer' tires were mounted. I expect to be into the 60's this tank (will be a first for me). It is a lot of work to keep up with shut offs all the time.

Running into this concern during my daily commute. An evening spin is the only way to avoid this for me.

Now that the warm, humid summer weather is here to stay, I just got a 76MPG on my last tank (351 miles of commuting up the mountain into NC to work, dry roads all of the way).

Nice, basjoos! Both you and Dan are still kicking my butt, percentage-wise, as zpiloto correctly points out. (Though I'm considering launching a protest based on overly optimistic Metro EPA hwy figures, relatively speaking...)

My daytime city trips are typically in the mid 80's on a regular basis, 90's if I try really hard and have good luck with traffic. I've got to work on my highway stuff, or stay off it, one or the other.

The way things are going it appears I may have to set my sights a bit lower than the #2 spot.

No way, GeoMetry. Keep at it!

BTW, Basjoos deserves special mention in all this, because he's driving "blind" with no FE instrumentation (if I'm not mistaken).
