    I filled up again Sunday afternoon. I'd been 444.4 miles and took 8.213 gallons for 54.109 MPG. I drove approximately 12-15 miles in funeral procession on this tank so that cut into mileage a little and there was a little a/c usage on this tank. As a normal rule I don't use a/c until the temperature and humidity are unbearable since I like the fresh air of having my windows down. The Versa just hit 30K miles on this tank. I gave the CVT a fluid drain/fill and new filters at 029993 miles to try to keep it happy for years to come. Here are the new stats:

    Fuel Cost $847.34
    Gallons 391.486
    Miles 19466.1
    Cost Mile .0435
    Ave. MPG 49.724
    Tank MPG 54.109
    G. Saved 181.046
    Free Miles 6155.6
    EPA +46.246%
    Tank +59.145% EPA

    I use approx 330 gallons of gas a year , but I have yet to "save" any of it.

    I burn every drop.

    I was slightly disappointed when I saw the actual numbers. My Ultra Gauge was showing 59.7 MPG. Not disappointed with 58.9 MPG just that my Ultra gauge was off by that much. I don't remember the exact numbers on the factory display but know it was showing over 65 MPG.

    The Versa was due an oil change this week so instead of using the 15 year old Citgo Supergard 10w40 I've been using this time around I decided to use some 15 year old Pennzoil Platinum 10w30 I had in the garage to see if it makes any difference in fuel efficiency but since it's already starting to cool down some for the fall I'm not likely to know for sure until early-mid next summer when the temperatures reach 85-95* and I'm back on summer blend gas. Looks like I'll probably be filling up again this afternoon after driving to church and mom's house for lunch. At the current time I've got about 500 miles on this tank and the Ultra Gauge I think is showing 57.1 MPG. I expect the actual MPG to be somewhere in the 56-57 MPG range when it's all said and done.

    Yeah, the northern daylight is shortening at its greatest rate at any time of the year. Only northern amateur astronomers & people who love fall colors are at their happiest, now. There are 2 beautiful small trees (Japanese maple?) down the block, bursting with pale green, yellow, rose, & pink colors.

    Filled up this afternoon 560.4 miles/10.004 gallons/56.018 mpg. Mileage was down 2.890 MPG since my previous tank when I set a new high record of 58.908 MPG. This tank is probably winter blend. Our forecast is for cooler and wetter so the next tank will likely take another hit on MPG. Looks like now I'll have to wait until next summer to try to get my 60 MPG tank. New specs:

    Fuel Cost $899.94
    Gallons 411.492
    Miles 20615.7
    Cost Mile .0437
    Ave. MPG 50.100
    Tank MPG 56.018
    G. Saved 194.852
    Free Miles 6625.0
    EPA +47.735%
    Tank +64.758% EPA
