    I'm still alive. Much has changed. I started taking COVID-19 seriously before some others at work and ended up getting sent home after I made a fuss about distancing that was not being observed at the time. Haven't been back to work since they sent me home.

    Meanwhile the kid is no longer in school so my days have been spent homeschooling my boy. It has been a big change.

    Filled up a while ago (Apr. 13), just now getting around to posting.

    604.2 miles trip

    27,970 OD
    57.5 MPG long term average

    Retirement going good. Don't miss the stress from work. Typical trip now is Wal-Mart pickup which is a great service. They toss your stuff in the trunk and you never need to go in the store at all!

    Oh wow!

    My longest trip lately was to Kohl's for an Amazon return. Great thing that. Just bring in your item and they do the rest. Yeah they got me the first time when bought a bunch of shirts but I needed them anyway. Can't really wear work shirts with a work logo in retirement. Anyhow they just take your Amazon item loose, not in a box or anything. They zap a code on your phone and you have a refund in minutes. So easy.

    I guess UPS does this now as well. Does not help me because Kohl's and UPS are right next to each other!

    We have had to use ups pickup, because we’re isolating.
    $7.- if it’s our fault, and free if it’s theirs

    We've used both Kohls and UPS. Both super convenient.

    2 years later and still getting over 60mpg calculated. That's amazing.

    For our 2018 Hybrid Camry LE:

    51.3 MPG long term average
    30,143 OD

    The car is driven with no special efforts to influence MPG. :) We are very happy with it.

    Still above EPA even in April. I guess it's warmer where you are.

    If you live in Canada than we are quite a bit closer to the equator, so a bit warmer, yeah.

    That makes a huge difference in MPG. Even trying my hardest, using all the tricks, EPA MPG is impossible to achieve mid winter. Meanwhile EPA MPG is easy to beat by just driving the car in the summertime. Using special techniques in the summertime can yield 70 MPG or more. Good luck getting 50 in the winter
