I am averaging about 16.5 after 26,500 miles.

I average about 18 to and from work - mostly highway and few stops.

If I get a big wind pushing me, I will be in the 20's.

If I get a big wind in front of me, I will be in the 14 range.


All numbers are hand calculated.

Areas that helped me:
#1 - (NO DOUBT) - driving style, habits
#2 - MINIMIZE IDLING (I still do SOME on VERY cold mornings and days)
#3 - tire pressure
#4 - fuel additives and synthetic oil (MY OPINION HERE, many feel differently)
#5 - I got the most recent flash - I LOVE it!
#6 - I was recently talked into a power elbow for a 0.2 mpg improvement.

We are now at a fuel cost that makes these little gains economical (ie a 1 year payout or so).

Also, check into the winter / summer fuel supply. Know what you are getting.
