2010 mpg season

duck season, rabbit season, MPG SEASON!!!!!

The warmer weather is upon us, and especially in the south the mpg numbers are going up. The "Eco driving" season is here!!! So post up what you get this summer.

Here is my first one. I wish I had thought to take a "fuel range" pic.

I have definately noticed improvement in the past couple of weeks.

I'm trying for my first 50 mpg tank for the year.

I'll probably fall a little short, especialy if I keep hitting the snooze alarm in the morning. ;P

I have a Hyundai Tucson Limited prototype with a 6-speed manual this week... The thing is so slow that it can barely get out of its own way. Hi there, sub-20mpg

Pretty pathetic when I'm looking forward to getting back into my turbocharged car for the fuel economy, huh?

post up average speeds too with the MPGs if your car came with that option. Mine's 27.5 mpg with an avg speed of 30mph. (kind of puts MPGs in perspective)
