    I agree. Kelly and I have known each other for 29 years , we were a couple from
    2006 to 2014 , we lived together for five years........ And now she is my roommate. We have a long history.

    Does Kelly use KELLY tires? If she could get raised White Letter KELLY tires, she could advertise herself around town. Oh, what a great idea!

    Stopping in Naperville after work to have dinner with my
    old friend Sarah. When she was 45 , she became full-time guardian
    for her grandson. That's a pretty big commitment. But 20 years later it looks like
    she did a pretty good job.

    33.3 miles , fcd = 66.6 x .943 = 62.8 MPG.

    For fitness, all I had to do was go to work. They provided lots of opportunity to stay fit…….or get yourself killed. Always thot that paying some company so I could exercise, totally funny.
    Man, I’m glad I made it to retirement!

    The price at my corner gas station increased more than 20 cents/gal today. I hate these prices as much as everyone else, but I’m grateful for accurate price reporting on gasbuddy. Also grateful I filled up this morning instead of waiting until the ride home! :)

    I don’t keep records like you folks, but I managed 45.8 mpg driving home one night this week and 44.5 mpg another night with an overall 39.8 mpg when I filled the tank this morning. I’m proud of myself. It was easier to get higher mpg with a MT.

    edit: I drove MT for years. Currently driving an automatic.

    I agree. Our family has two Hyundai Elantras, one, an automatic & one, a manual, of the same 2011-16 Series. The manual gets better MPG, despite the manual being geared 6-7% lower than the automatic.

    That's great! Beating the EPA highway rating by a lot on some drives and also over highway rating on a tank basis says a lot about your determination and skills. Kudos.

    Edwin, your great MPG is boring, just like the appliance you drive. ;):D Keep up the good work!

    Bill , I agree , lol. My results are boring , the challenge of driving in Chicago metro traffic
    AND getting good results is never boring.
    I would describe the Prius as a "very effective transportation appliance".

    And that's exactly what I need. :)

    Only a handful of stations (in Eastern Washington, or a toll fee or ferry boat ride away) in ALL of Washington state remain below $5 per gallon. All the rest are over & WAY OVER $5. Despite Maxx criticizing my poorness, I restate that my optional driving has plummeted to a very very low level.

    Interesting. Where else in the world do they sell fuel in gallons ?
    Even in the UK and Canada they sell in litres.
    I certainly believe the gallon EQUIVALENT could be $9.42 , but
    this sign is fake.

    I agree. However, I do look at the gist without regard for the imagery that likely draws immediate attention from US readers.

    Maybe it's $9.42 in San Diego now. :)
