Yeah that I have done in the Geo also - pulling the key is the problem - had you just turned it off you would have been ok. Simular problem when pushing the car a little when off and the wheel is not locked yet... you turn it then CLICK then you have to find the key and put it in.

Guess I just need to figure out how to get to the .1gph burn rate on the engine when it is in neutral and idling and keep it running - not too crazy about shutting it off anyway with the instruments and abs and all.

What happened to your job at the mechanic shop place?

Woops, that was number 1000.

That was always just an internship, I'm not ASE cert so I couldn't get a job there anyway, not good for advertising, besides, their bays were all full.

hit the 1/4 mark at 340 miles. It's 10 more than my usual. Hopefully this time it will be a 30.00 or higher tank.

This tank has lasted 26days so far (mpg will be in the mid 20s I assume)! I will need to get gas soon. I really want to make it to 1 month.

Well, I honestly did not think that I would beat my last tank, but I did. I stretched this tank out to 686 km (426 mi) for a 53.93 mpg record!

100% city driving. Avg temperature was 16.245?C (61.242?F).

That drives me to the #9 position on the top ten list! (however, I'm at the bottom of the percentage list )

Don't worry, you bought the car to do well, so you are still praised for that decision!

My brother started working for the honda dealership before he was ASE certified. They paid all of his training to get him certified. He started working there fairly young too not much older than you. He started as the oil change boy and has worked his way up to one of the top techs they have there. Look around if that is what you want to do there is a way.

I'm still waiting for some of my low numbers to drop off my 90-day avg as well. I'm aiming for 60 mpg in July and August (if this windy, rainy weather will stop!), but then I'll be dropping off all the lists once winter hits again in October/November.
