    Woohoo! Passed 1,00,000 km (600k mi) in our fuel economy tracker

    We passed a significant milestone this month: over HALF A MILLION km tracked in our fuel economy log.

    Some interesting stats have emerged, particularly in terms of CVT drivers (38 of them) vs. 5-speed drivers (35 of them). The results are probably not what most people would have expected.

    View the fuel consumption stats broken down by engine size (1.2L vs. 1.0L) and transmission type here:

    And THANKS to all of you who are posting fuel logs!

    If you're not tracking your car, please consider adding your info to the tracker. The more the merrier! It's easy: just (1) create an entry for your car, and (2) start adding fuel fill-up information.

    It is also appropriate to point out that several fuel economy ratings/info are quite dated; just one or two or three entries and then nothing. Wish people would post more entries, so we get an idea about how the "fleet" is doing.

    I have mixed feelings. I am glad to know that the car is capable of such good efficiency, but then feel a bit inadequate when I post my results. I'm either inspired to do better, or ashamed of myself . . . not sure yet!

    Canoehead: you're doing fine considering you're driving in the tail end of a harsh (cold) winter, on non-LRR tires, using winter formulated fuel, in windy weather, loaded up in a not-yet-broken-in car. The Mirage will pleasantly surprise you once conditions improve.

    Agreed. (Part of the reason for posting this thread, to remind folks.)

    I need to update mine, it's been a while. I keep a logbook in the center console, so it's a matter of getting around to data entry.

    Your reminder got me to put in my data today. Nagging works (sometimes).

    Thanks, MiMi.

    Seems to work for others, too: we now have 8 more cars being tracked than we did a couple of weeks ago when this thread was started.
