I can't find the thread on MPGS, know I saw one on here. That's the way it is when you get old.
I filled the XBox yesterday and it got 31.04 mpg on the first full tank, 171.7 miles took 5.531 gallons.
That is 80% or more city driving. I am tickled with my new car.

Secrets!!!!

Area flat? Low traffic flow? Drive like an old man lol :rofl:! drafting every car and truck in town?

That is a great first tank. I average 27.4 mostly h'way and always look for ways to get better.
Share your thoughts for a world of better MPG's! :D

I congratulated you somewhere on your purchase and just want to do that again. :yes:

That is impressive. My first 1k was low mpg, but my BbCM has settled in on 28-30 in mixed driving. I think my computer is about 1-2 mpg too high. It said 33 mpg after a 320 mile trip at 50-65 mph and I still had about 1/8th of a tank left.

Yep, drive like an old man cause I am one. Pretty much flat terrain. longest trip I made was about 40 miles rest was 5 to 10 mile trips.No drafting, traffic moderate.
I keep thinking I have figured something wrong, we'll see next time.

I just paid $52 to fill up my empty tank yesterday in CA. Reg unleaded, I hope gas doesnt get too bad too fast.
they are predicting 15-20 cents rise this weekend!! my local 76 station went from 4.39 to 4.49 over night! i knew i should have fueled up last night!

hey Ole Dummy

that is great mileage - i get 22 mpg in town w/ all city driving but we have a lot of traffic lights and i tend to do a lot of short trips where i live so you can never really get going - i can get ~25-26 mpg in my commute alone on streets [~14 miles one way]

22 mpg is what is advertised for the xB so i feel good when i am getting more :D

I'm usually the one to gas up our cars & on our trip this weekend my wife saw the gas prices... she didn't know we broke $4.00 yet & one fill up was at $4.47. Needless to say she wasn't happy w/ the $58 to fill up the Camry w/ 1/4 tank left. I'm really getting more use out of the new widget I added to the site here:

and of course there's http://www.GasBuddy.com

Thats all right we are paying $3.99-$4.05 for 87, On saturday I got so pissed though. I was on the way to hang out with some friends and this gas station in the area had gas for $3.88. Figured I would fill up on the way out, and on the way out they had upped the price to $3.99.
