    So far, I haven't been participating in the Mileage Logs section of this site. Until I do, here is a graph on my Subaru's FE over its entire life, since early 1997:

    The ragged blue displays every tank FE. The yellow line is a 10-tank weighted average, the best I could do with simple Excel equations. Red ticks are ~Jan 1 of each year, to highlight the seasonal variation. Just in case anyone can't guess the point where I installed a ScanGauge-II and started hypermiling :D, it is marked. I slacked off this winter, but still did as well as summers a few years back.

    The spike at 103k miles was several tanks in and around Yellowstone National Park. With typical speeds of 35 in the park, under 45 on a couple runs to Beartooth Pass, and elevations of 6000 feet and higher, FE conditions were wonderful. I'd like to try it again, now with some knowledge of HM.

    Interesting idea correlating FE and mileage... I smell a new chart in my current spreadsheet:woot:
