How to search mileage logs

    I've started a new mileage log, and I'd like to see how I compare against other Mazda drivers, but I see no easy way to do this. Am I missing something?

    Also, how is % of EPA computed? I'm doing mixed driving, so I would expect it to use the combined EPA number, which is 33 mpg for my car. If you go with % city/highway, I would expect the comp value to be well under 33 (based on 29-city, 40-highway). But it seems to be going with 34-something. Not a huge issue, but since many of us here are probably engineers or math nerds of some kind and the logs use 3 digits of precision, I would expect that to be pretty accurate.

    Maybe the mixed EPA is just the halfway point between city and highway. That would work out nearly right, mathematically. Maybe I should just say 100% city instead of 90% or whatever, then my numbers for beating the EPA would probably be more impressive.
