Carpool 2 days a week (thank god). Speeds varied from 70 to 55 mph, trying to not use the CC, but get used to driving at a consistent speed while looking at the SG. Ugh... Tire pressure 38 psi. Added Fuel injector cleaner at 3/4 on this fillup.

Another guestimate from last fill up. Again used 87... Carpooling so losing a MPG or 2 because of extra weight. Used A/C here and there. Added fuel injection cleaner at half a tank.

Minor... "Mishap" at the pump so I had to guestimate... Didn't really care about this one, it was going to be bad to start. I was doing Day shift for work killing my MPG.

A bit too much 70-75 mph I guess. Tire Pressure at 32 psi. May have to sacrifice ride quality a bit for a higher pressure. Put in 89 gas this time. Also going to try 36 psi.
