    Today , 53 deg F in Naperville , 52 in Wood Dale. Steady wind from the east hurt a bit.
    Roads were wet from the night's rain. 35.1 miles , 58.89 MPG.
    Tank is at 190.0 miles , 63.38 MPG. I may take scenic route #1 home tonight.
    It's a bit longer than scenic route #2 , but more opportunities to glide.

    It's definitely a commute of two halves - pretty clear going and traffic aplenty going home!!

    Not great again last night - just made it detour #2 but hit a big queue on second half, 63°C, tailwind W8:
    48.4 / 19.2

    Beat yesterday's best ever inbound commute this morning managing to see over 70mpgUK ( 71.4mpgUK / 59.5mpgUS :D) on the FCD for the first time going to work. Motorway route then a big queue meant yet another detour of the traffic light section but it allowed for plenty of slow engine off coasting. Sunny, 54°C, headwind W4:
    56.5 / 21.6

    Tank up 0.3 at 59.6 (FCD 52.1) / 419.4 / Range 230 . Guess gauge F____|««««E . UG up 0.4 at 52.9 / DTE 296

    Half tank @ 380 miles

    On vacation after today for 16 days :cool:.

    Today , 62 deg F in Naperville , 61 in Wood Dale. Rain , rain , rain , all the way in.
    Wind from the east 5-6 MPH. 35.1 miles , 56.40 MPG. Tank is at 578.0 miles ,
    two pips remaining , 64.15 MPG.
    Heather and Eric moved out yesterday. I'm glad to have the animals out of my house ,
    but I worry about them. I don't think they were really ready to buy a house , they have a lot of debt.
    Having a $2K mortgage payment makes it difficult to pay off credit card debt. I told them to stick around
    another 6-12 months and save money , pay off debts. Did they listen ? :)

    It's lonely in here. Instead of preaching to the choir , I'm talking to myself.
    Didn't fill up yesterday , I was in the wrong lane as I approached the Amoco in Naperville.
    I was in the far left turn lane instead of the right lane. So , I knw I would have to get up
    a bit earlier to fill up there in the morning. Couldn't sleep well , so I left the house a lot earlier
    than usual. Filled up for $3.239/gal of E10 87. 615.7 miles/ 9.460 gallons = 65.08 MPG.
    fcd = 67.5 x 0.956 = 64.53 MPG. The weather has been cooperating , at least when it's not raining.
    Had a number of 70 trips home (non-highway) and that helped.

    Today 62 deg F in Naperville , 60 in Wood Dale. No wind. 34.4 miles , 67.97 MPG.
    Tank is at 29.1 miles , 71.4 MPG.

    Hello , hello. Is this thing on ?
