The Grand Gas experiment of 2008, Part 2

July 6, 2008
tags: , ,

Just a quick update, for noone, really. Like I said in the previous post, I’ve been making an effort to drive less like a maniac (ie, not get on the gas too much, don’t get into boost, etc.) The previous mpg for driving like a maniac was 15.7 mpg. I’ve had to fill up twice since then, and the mileage, while still not great, is much better. First fillup was 17.9 mpg, and the most recent fillup was 18.1 mpg.

I ran some rough numbers, and an extra 2 mpg saves me something like $450/year. Not great, but it’s better than nothing! More experiments to follow (mainly flashing the ECU).
