Just filled up and got 51.7mpg with 90% HWY, some cold and rainy conditions, curious to hear what others are getting with their Grill Covers on this Winter.  YouTube views are up to 6200 now. smile.png

With temps in the 65 - 80*F range we are in the best MPG range for the CMAX Hybrid and FFH now.  Here is my last trip to N. Atlanta and my tank fill up.

Trip going up temps 78*F, little tailwind and speeds 75 - 65mph.

Trip going back temp 73*F, little head winds and speeds 70 - 60 mph less drafting.

Actual MPG for tank 56.6 mpg and almost 800 miles. :)  

 

YouTube video views upto 6500 now. :)

 

I use Fuelly.com to keep track of my fillups and gas mileage.  I use GasBuddy.com  to find the best gas prices which you can save 10 - 20%. :)

How fast do you drive on the highway? I get a little impatient and only averaged like 37/38 MPG on a recent six hour trip. It was raining, and I was using E15. But I was still kind of disappointed.

I usually stay to the right, but keep up with traffic, because I try to draft semi's when I can. If traffic is heavy just go with the flow of traffic, staying behind bigger vehicles is better, but don't get to close, you never know when someone is going to slam on their brakes. :)  Remember I do all the things that are in my videos.  I drive 5k miles on a trip across country and average 49 - 51 mpg using Premium 93 octane and usually get close to 700 mi. on a tank.  BTW it usally takes 13 -13.5 gal to fillup my tank. :) I know my car pretty good with 308 fillups.
