    Nice! you gotta love not having the bladder in the EU cars! full fill is what the tank holds and not what the bladder wants to hold.

    That's until you see how much we have to pay for gas... :)


    But it's a good score for a first tank. :)

    I just finished my first tank last weekend. 402 miles on 8.8 gallons -- about 46MPG.

    How have other people done on their first tanks? What are the milestones where you started to achieve higher mileage?

    My first was 497 miles at 49.2 mpg. That was helped by having nearly ideal conditions for 130 miles driving it home from the dealer - 51.5 mpg.

    To learn how to get the best you can, read Evan's (efusco) article. Also Daniel's (daniel) on the 4 stages.

    I'm no where near any mechanical milestone (5000 miles). But your personal milestones will include
