Bored

So today i got bored and instead of driving like a moron i decided to reset my avg. mpg. and see what kind of milage i could get if i stayed bellow 75 and shift at the shift light. By doing this i managed to average 41.3 mpg. i was quite impressed to say the least.

These cars can get very impressive mpg when driven for that purpose. Congrats on the good number. You think you might continue to drive like this?

3.78L in a gal
1.6Km/Mile....

5.5L/3.78=1.4Gal
100Km/1.6=60M

sooo... 60/1.4= 42mpg? sound right? doesnt sound totally unreasonable, I was driving like the most thrifty gas sipper ever haha!
