I had to open my fuel filler door lol.

I really topped off this fill-up, so the numbers are skewed. If I stopped at the normal shut-off, this fill-up would be 53.8 mpg instead of 50. This will average out on the next fill-up.

I don't know where this tank went. It's like the past couple weeks flew by. I thought the fuel consumption would be worse. Go figure. It's like a Lake Wobegon episode - above average.

Fuel pump did not auto shut off on this fill up!! Spilled about a cup of gasoline - rats. Though this has an adverse affect on my fuel economy, I think my low numbers might be attributed to some faster, harder driving on this tank.

A few highway trips on this tank at about 50 - 55 mph. Today I ran out the gas on this tank trying pulse and glide for the first time on the freeway and was impressed with how much less fuel was consumed. I read more about this on 3dplane's garage entry thread. Thanks 3dplane!

More diligence with fuel saving driving such as slower acceleration, timing of stops/stoplights, and lower speeds.
Tire pressure increased from 45psi to 50psi at this fill up.
Should have summer fuel formula on this fill up, instead of winter, so I expect fuel economy gains on the fuel formula, warmer outside air temperatures, and tire pressure increase. Car is otherwise in stock form. Last tank of fuel might have been summer - I don't know...
