Practice and Patience Pay Off!!!
Okay... been stroking this car's accelerator something fierce lately trying to come up with something even CLOSE to willmpg's numbers. Topped her off today and headed for class... put on 70 miles round trip exactly, the dis showed 386 miles estimated for this fill-up. My original post I was complaining about it reading 326 after a fill up... so, anyways I traveled 70 miles tonight and then I filled her back up upon my return.
HOLY F**K!!! I used all of 1.43 gal. for the trip... that works out to 48.95 mpgs!!! The dis showed my average at 38.7 for that trip. The estimate on the mileage left in that tank before I filled her back up upon my return was 428 (up from 386 before I left for school) and after I filled her up after school tonight the dis was reading that I had 454 estimated miles for the tank of fuel!!!
WILL... Thanks for the tips man!!! I am a solid believer now!!! I am still not giving in until I can post numbers like yours!!!
There is nothing like driving 70 miles and the gas gauge needle is still pegged at full... well, you motor heads might not think so but I usually put on 20 -30,000 miles a year on my ride just for work... a fuel savings like this can buy accesories for the car like new projectors and LED tailights!
