Fill 'er up

Yesterday was my second fill-up: 7.231 gallons with a trip odometer reading 298.3 miles for a "tank mpg" of 41.3 mpg. The "consumption screen" claimed 45.5 mpg for a total of 297 miles. Um, I don't think so??

This last tank included a highway trip, doing speeds as high as 65 mph. It also included a day when I had to shovel the car out from under a load of icy snow, while the car sat still for 20 minutes burning gas to run the front and rear defrosters. All things considered, not too bad.

Now that the weather is warming up it will be interesting to see if the mileage improves.
