Filled up today: 396.3 mi., 4.7 gal (US) = 84.3 mpg (US).
SG was off by 4.6% on the mpg calc. It said 88.2 - reported slightly under on distance (saying 392 mi.), and quite under on fuel used (said 4.4 gal).
Hey metro that is half the error of your last fill. You did not reset the numbers from last time right? Any ideas on why there is such a big change? Do you think that you could have lost that much petro through evaporation form taking 4 months to fill on the previous tank? Curious indeed....
Right - I didn't change anything on the SG after last fill.
I don't know why there would be such a difference. I thought of the evaporation idea too over the winter, but the car is supposed to have a closed loop system (and it was tested as part of the emissions test). It's a mystery.
Anyway, I'll re-jig the SG before I drive next. So it's more accurate on this tank.
Just your Friendly weekly reminder to submit estimated data or enter gaslogs for Week 3.

New Members -- any other fills or estimates? (James and theclencher).
I'll be on the road until late in the evening for work on Monday. The results should be posted around Monday night/Tuesday morning.
I was doing great 47.3 mpg tank until Friday when I had to run some really short trips up and down hills on really bummy streets for about a half mile each way but still not too bad and started house sitting 1 mile from office with a really tough driveway to turn around in.
