I got 47mpg's this last tank! It wasn't a complete tank about 280 miles on it, but I decided to fill up at the start of my highway jaunt to Elk Grove and then home.
I got home late unpacked the car and rushed to Transformers 3 so my mileage could be better, but i'm not ruling 50+ mpg's out of the current tank;-) I'll have pics of her all loaded up from todays shopping it was a bit heavy.
I seriously think I need to revamp my goals now! I would've been great with 40, but now I'm going to push myself to see where the limit is(mpg's wise). I have a very careful foot from tig welding, and always look as far ahead as possible. I also think driving the same dang road could be beneficial because I'm familiar with it(could probably drive it blindfolded no joke!)
This dang hatchback is so useful!
Look what all I packed in it yesterday.
I'm hoping to be taking a trip to Laguna Seca next weekend to watch my buddy race shifter karts with the best in the world! I'm stoked for him because I know he'll do awesome! It also means I get to do a road trip:-)
Tomorrow I'm headed to Laguna Seca! I got a few things done on the car today: changed oil in the engine and trans, cleaned the interior again(shampoo carpet, seats, etc).
I'm going to fill up after class and I'm hoping to break the 50 mpg mark on the current tank. Going to Laguna should yield great results. I will be the only person in the car, and won't have much with me so I should shave 300-400 pounds easily!
