||Cost of Fuel
||3.35||One autox - wife drove only a couple of times. EOC when possible. Had a hour long idle episode in traffic one day, nasty. Fall has arrived, rain and 40s - 60s again.
||3.43||Yikes. The following has happened:
Auto cross tires installed on open face aluminum rims (wide heavy sticky more drag)
Two autocross events (lots of idling and about 4 minuets of full throttle)
more normal driving (much less engine off coasting)
Family car duty
||3.79||whew. best tank to date. Lots of freeway miles (p&g drafting) and basic run around stuff (getting better a antisipating lights), still not too bad. Limit for this car? It was alot of work I have to say.
40s at night
60s in the day
||3.5||Had some warm days and it makes a difference. Had to EOC to keep from overheating as grill is fully taped. Lots of EOC on current routes and confident enough to use it on random drives now too. Getting better at looking ahead and gliding up to traffic/traffic lights to reduce idle time, but still idleing at all but the longest lights. First full tank with tape/foam spoiler.
Strange, but as my mileage raises, so are gas prices......hmm.||43.93|
||3.35||Spring weather - one day with snow one day with 70's in the afternoon. Generally cold in the morning (30's) and in the warm in the day (50's). 50% freeway. Added trunk lip/removed antenna. First fill with new plugs. Engine generally below operating temperature.||39.58|
||3.07||Agressive EOC leads to cold engine all the time. warmer weather should raise number a bit. 30-50's for temps with rain. All short <10 mile trips to close office and back home. spark plug change during this tank. Not too bad for the conditions, but I thought I was doing better.||37.09|
||2.93||Snow hail rain cats dogs and long trip with a full load aboard. Wow what a difference. ||31.96|
||2.67||70% hwy (60-70 mph) and 30% short trips (7 mile). Weather is warming a bit in the 40's. EOC is working!!! Using it on the freeway commute now.||38.28|
||0||Lots of short drives in coldish weather 7 mi / <40 degree
My wife took a couple of trips = lower mpg
Trip to the ski hill
experimented with engine off coasting!!! Fun
||2.87||70% short trip to work (7 miles)
30% long trip to office (45 miles 60-70 mpg)
Cold/Snow min 16 max 40 degrees||29.72|
