    I still can't believe you're getting 4.6L/100km in Alberta lol. That block heater really must do wonders.

    Btw, how'd you get 38 litres in the tank? I've pumped 36.306 litres max and that was in August.

    Tank Mileage: 620.9km

    MFD Avg: 4.9L/100km
    Calc'd Avg: 5.18L/100km

    It's been kinda warm again lately. The block heater hasn't been used at all this year! The average started at 3.8L/100km up to the first 100 km (did a nice long trip around the city for some errands). Then it slowly crept up to 4.3/4.4 through to the 500 km mark, and rose quickly to 4.5/4.6 after that when the temperature dropped for the latter part of the tank. I was hoping for a 4.5 at the end, but won't argue with a 4.6. :)

    I went about 90 km past the start of the blinking bar on the gas gauge this time. That probably emptied the tank out enough for 38 L. It actually had me worried because I haven't gone that far past the blinking light before, but I just couldn't find any gas stations! The most I've ever gotten in the tank was 39 L during the middle of summer. I stop filling when the gas pump clicks off on its own, so it shouldn't be from over-filling.

    3.8L/100km? :blink: <sigh> that's what Vancouver hills do to your mileage. I'm at 4.6L/100km now but not even at 100km into this new tank. Farthest I've gone is 35km after the start of the blinking light.

    Tank #3 (2/15/06):

    Tank miles: 397
    Total miles: 1038
    MFD mpg: 47.8
    Gallons filled: 8.503
    Price per gallon: $2.559
    Calculated mpg: 45.5

    Lifetime calculated mpg: 43.4

    This tank was much better than the first two, which were both below 43. One possible reason for that is that I hadn't checked my tire pressure until the end of the second tank, and when I did, I found that all of them were a little underinflated and one had a slow leak. I've since had the leaky tire repaired, and now I'm keeping them at 38/36.

    My car has 4,300 miles on the odometer and am already getting 49 mpg without trying too hard. Hopefully when it's really broken in, I'll get 50 easily.

    that is good under any circumstances. but without your general location posted, cant say if you are doing good (at 49 mpg that is as uncomplimentary as it gets) or great.

    Something doesn't add up. How do you get 553 miles on a tank and only 37.5 mpg?
