yeah, it was warm here too.

yeah, it was warm here too. i did a little trip today:

Conditions at SUPN6 as of (7:00 pm EDT) 2300 GMT on 04/11/2006:

Wind Direction (WDIR): S ( 190 deg true )
Wind Speed (WSPD): 2 kts
Wind Gust (GST): 2 kts
Atmospheric Pressure (PRES): 30.24 in
Air Temperature (ATMP): 61.0 F

scangauge says...

38 mph avg
60 mph max
70.9 miles round trip

65.0 mpg (us)

my tank's not as high though - i'm hovering around 62.

today would have been a perfect day to re-try the belly pan tests, but unfortunately i had other things i had to do.

and speaking of air pressure, i have to let some out of my tires. i didn't check it today, but i'm guessing with the increased air temps, it was significantly higher than 50. it just seems so brutal on the suspension.

have fun on your holiday!

trip and tank

Running around today and I got 48.2mpg on my return trip about 19 miles - 43.3 mpg for the day roud trip with lots of stops and the tank is around 44.5 mpg. Can't wait to change the oil and get some Synlube in there!

my first 60+ mpg fill-up -

my first 60+ mpg fill-up - yay for me!

60.68 mpg (US).

that's 14% better than my previous best tank in this car, and 32% above the combined EPA rating. i could have gone much further than the 642 km / 399 mi on the odo, but i was getting impatient to get a number. i filled up with 24.9 L (it's a 40 L tank).

the main change on this tank was engine-off coasting. warmer weather also arrived for the last 1/3 of the tank. i started using engine-off coasting technique about 8 days after the previous fill-up (was using engine-on coasting before adding the kill switch).

unfortunately, the scangauge still appears to be somewhat confused by the engine-off stuff. it was optimistic on my tank mpg by 2.32 mpg or 3.8%. normally i've been seeing a calculation difference around 1-2% between scangauge/gas receipt.

3.8% might not seem like a lot, but it was off on both amount of fuel used and distance travelled (way off). i'll post more later in a new thread, since there are several scangauge users doing the same thing. probably worth looking into.

Congrats on the 60.68 tank

Congrats on the 60.68 tank Metro! You beat my best tank by 0.08 MPG. Methinks there will be some one upsmanship going on here for awhile.
