Question The Miles and MPG Thread

442 round-trip miles on the trip for me, including the Sunday jaunt to Hershey.

(According to the very reliable Mr. OTIS) I averaged 27.3 mpg from my house to Carlisle with average speeds of 75-80 mph, but only wound up with an overall average of 25.3 mpg, with all the running around in between. Still was happy, particularly with O2 sensors acting up a little!

I reset my trip odometer at the Turkey Hill so I have no round trip figures, but it would probably be around 280 miles round trip. I measured 20.5 mpg at the Turkey Hill, but that includes all my driving from last tuesday to this past sunday, which is a good mix of city and highway, and a decent amount of idling to keep the battery charged while playing music.

400 miles back home got caught in DC traffic and averaged over 80 mph for about 200 miles, 25.0 mpg. Not bad at all :icon_smil

Well it is hard to believe but the car got 29.5 mpg up and back doing 75-80 mph. Maybe there is something to aero drag.

The best I saw was before the traffic in NY, I was doing about 27.3 MPG with one passenger, lots of shit, and about 200lbs of stereo, WITH the A/C on.

On the way to Carlisle I got 26.3 mpg, on the way back I got 27.5mpg, and when Ryan got in the car (3 passengers, luggage, shit etc) I got 26.1. The new O2 sensors really helped!
