Well, it's not over yet, but I've had a run of 348 miles & I'm still a click over 1/4 of a tank! For a while, I had been experimenting with driving techniques on how to get better MPG, but I kept getting the same crap. After weeks of trying, I gave up. Lately, I had started taking the long way to work instead of using the highway. If I go the highway, it's about an 8.5 mile run where the long way through the country roads is exactly 13 miles. On the highway, there's slight uphill on a 2mi stretch & I can travel @ 65-70mph where on the country route, it's mostly flat, some uphill travel, a little downhill, & I can drive from 40mph to 50-55mph on the last stretch to work. Then on sun., I had to take my son back home in CT. That's about 150 mile ride round trip & it's almost all highway.
It seems I've been getting better MPG on the country roads than I do on the highway. I always thought you'd get your best MPGs on the highway. I'll post back when I get the final MPGs, but it looks like I'll get pretty close to 400mi on this tank!
I'm hoping for around 18-19MPGs!
