    MPG Results. EPA promise kept!

    Just drove 283 miles tonight during round trip to Wilmington from DC on the busy I-95 corridor.
    This was 85-90% Highway but included some city driving w/ idling at red lights as well

    According to Trip computer total mpg was 38.6.

    On the outgoing leg when I was doing pure Hiway driving and also making a deliberate effort to optimize mpg I got 42.4 mpg.

    "In the end we all just play the roles given us... Sometimes they dont fit so well,... but I guess we make do."

    Dont forget MultiMedia forums!!

    I've been hitting 700 miles a tank. The trip computer needs 2 read 37mpg 2 reach the 700 mile mark and the tank needs 2 b topped off.

    You better get the mpg down. You are car forum people. I expect 13-14 mpg. Work on it!

    That's awesome, Fred. We were able to get in the 38 mpg range in the wife's '14 Altima on a couple of trips from Ft. Worth to Phoenix. Never managed to break 40, though.

    That's some economical driving!
