    Short road trip

    I just got back from going to Winstar Casino in Oklahoma. I put 182 miles on it before filling up again. I calculated 36 MPG by hand and it registered a bit over 37 on the i-Mid screen. I did fill up at two different stations. Overall, with this little road trip, I'm pleased with the results. The i-Mid screen had gotten as high as 39 MPG average when I got to my destination.

    Of course, heading home into a headwind where the speed limit was 75 mph brought down my numbers a bit.

    Not too bad at all. Did you top off the air in your tires before your trip? I've done trips to Chi-town from Champaign/Urbana (supposed to be an average of 3 hrs.), in under 2 hrs. 25 mins. and virtually have half a tank to go, just by making sure all my tires are at 32 lbs/psi prior to making my trip.

    Jack it to 34 and mileage improves even more, without a harsh ride.
