I forgot about this thread but by coincidence I passed 500 miles on my present tank today.

I should have taken the picture before I left for work. It was a cool day and my mileage kept dropping during my commute.

Great Job, looks like you got the hang of it now. :)

Last Fillup 600.5 mi, 296.2EV 47.6 MPG using 12.61Gal. I would guess that I spent 75% of time on the highway and 25% in the city with an average speed of 55 mph.

My last fill-up stated 605 miles to empty. it's been slowly improving since I got it a few weeks ago. I haven't let it go far enough to empty to see the 500-600+ yet on the trip odometer, but I know I will soon. :) I'm loving the mileage so far. Last fill up it avg. around 45mpg+ Just took a trip to Philly and back via Bethlehem, PA. A lot nice long hills to charge and coast. :)

 

Fillup for last leg to Philly.

I was having trouble uploading the trip meter jpg.  It comes out small.  Would appreciate help in how to do it right.
 
721.2 miles        444.3 EV
53.4 MPG
13.49 gal
 
Miles driven on car 18597.3
 
 
Regular fuel
mostly suburban driving 

 

Actually was having fun when I was by myself in the car rather than boredom.  Not so orthodox with people in the car.

Best tank so far 56.7 MPG on Fuelly.   happy%20feet.gif   I also had a new high for going to work in the morning, 75.4 MPG.  I love the warm summer months!

 

I did not get a screen shot of the dash for the last fill up.  I usually fill up every week or two which is about 1/4 to 1/2 tank.  My avg below of the last 10 fill ups is more than 500 miles.  52.3 on Fuelly

I hate the burning hot summer months -- at least in terms of MPG. I've had to make some short trips recently in the middle of the day (90+ degree heat and high humidity), between the A/C and short trip it absolutely destroys my fuel economy. I'll be glad for those mild winter days that are coming in another month or two. ;)

 

Funny how geography changes our perceptions....

 

Seriously, I've had some short drives (between 1 and 5 miles) in the last few days on a full tank that is hurting my current mpgs (I think I'm in the low 30s for this tank) -- not to mention I had some type of road debris in a rear tire last Tuesday and had to replace the tire.

Guess we need a C-Max neighborhood here in Michigan for the summer and then we all spend the winter down your way. 

 

Maybe "C-Max Hills Subdivision"   ;)

In Arizona, they just call those people Snowbirds. Texas seems to be less popular with the Snowbirds, likely because of the humidity here.

Great idea! You could arrange it so you're driving downhill going and coming home!

Yeah, I'm from Texas. It cannot beat the desert or south Florida for winter conditions. It really isn't that humid in most areas away from the coast, but it gets pretty cold in most parts of Texas north of San Antonio.

721 miles - Rockin tank there Obob - hope you have this posted on the 600 mile tank club !!!!!

 

BTW all, ............. this is the 500 mile / best MPG thread.  (Just try to resist the temptation to down hill this effort.) 

 

Counting on you WNY to crack the 600 mile club soon !

 

Scottwood:  you have 'short tanks' - hope you get a chance to extend those out before the frost, and also join the 600 mile tank club.

 

Cheering !!  :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

 

Nick

Finally got over the 500 mile mark coming back from Nashville! I prolly could have pushed it to 600, but not enough gas stations on the last leg and at least .20-.30 cents cheaper per gallon in PA than NY for gas! lol

 

500+ Mile club.
