odometer reading

This may have been posted at some point, but, how do I determine actual miles driven with 35" tires. I don't know how many miles I am really getting between fill ups and between regens. Odometer will read fewer miles than how far I really went, I think!

Find out the percentage of difference using the calculator above in Davey~do's post.

Take your mileage from odo and add that percentage to it.

Formula Example:
300 miles on your odo x (for example) 3% = 9 miles ----- 300 + 9 = 309 miles.

New mileage calculation divided by the fuel gallons = revised MPG.

Standard mileage calculation:
300 miles divided by 20 gals = 15 MPG
New mileage calculation:
309 miles divided by 20 gals = 15.45 MPG
