New Personal Best and New Job

Once a year during the summer really push my hypermiling just to see what I can get.

I just finished that tank and here are the results.
12.110 gal to fill tank back up
61.25 mpg average
741.7 miles

Here is a pic of my range after I filled up.


Also....
I got a new job starting tomorrow.

My new job will probably lower my average by 5 mpg but instead of 70 miles round trip it will only be 40 miles.
Instead of 1.3 gal of gas a day I will only be using roughly 0.8 gal. Save 130+ gal of gas a year, I'll take that deal.
Also, it is only about 6 miles from where my wife works so depending on my schedule we may be able to carpool once or twice a week.
