Re: FE Challenge 17 - Spring 2012

I'll be filling up tomorrow.
Thursday's trip didn't bring the tank average up to 40 , but my UG normally reads a little low, so there's hope yet.
I ended up using 2.81 gallons for the day Thursday (can't remember how many miles), so my prediction of 2.75 gallons wasn't too far off.
Here are the tank averages as of now (and a flickr test)

Back to photobucket...
They're both a pain to fetch bbcode via mobile browser...

Re: FE Challenge 17 - Spring 2012

I DID IT!!!!!


It also appears that I need to recalibrate my UG for summer gas?

14 days on this tank, with an elapsed (engine on) time of 13 hours and 38 minutes (trip computer figure).
70% city driving.
Average speed of 32 MPH (the car's trip computer figure).
A computed 0.8143 gallons per hour average for the tank (spreadsheet figure).
Cost per mile of $0.096 (spreadsheet figure), $3.799 per gallon.
11.102 gallons consumed over 453.0 (adjusted) miles for a Personal Record 40.8052 MPG!

I had a little highway on this tank (one trip at the begining and one at the end on Saturday), so that and slightly warmer temps helped out a bit.

Re: FE Challenge 17 - Spring 2012

Nice job Jon,

I predict that soon you will be upset with anything less than 40 mpg.

Re: FE Challenge 17 - Spring 2012

Low fuel light came on at 686 (record ) and I was going to fill-up tomorrow but I won't have time so had to fill up 'early' this morning. Dropped off car pooler and nipped back to garage. Bit disappointed as UG was indicating higher but it's still a record full tank . I'm glad to be back in the 50's after 5 tanks in the 40's:

13.58galls over 688.5 miles = 50.7MPG (Needs another of these )

That's my 8th tank in a row of 600+ miles
