    That graph seems to be very accurate. My latest 290 mile highway run was at 65 mph with no A/C. And I averaged just a skosh over 50 mpg. Which, would be another blue line parallel to the existing blue line, but about 3 or 4 mph offset higher, due to NOT running the A/C.

    Well, I filled up this morning. Last bar started flashing and I chickened out.
    Made it 726kms/451miles. I filled as much as I could go at the pump. Took 35 Liters/ 9.246 Gallons. I might have been able to get another liter in there if I waited around another 5 mins but maybe not.

    Most expensive fill up yet at $49.37.

    Zero regrets owning one of these cars!!

    So....@35 liters for 726kms =4.82l/100km or 48.7MPG That's not entirely accurate, last time I filled up I did the same at the pump then went home and squeezed another liter or two in. So...assuming it could have taken an extra 2 liters that works out to 5.1L/100km or 46MPG. Again, not to pretty bad.

    I'll just assume I could have gotten another liter or 1 1/2 in there and that's still 47mpg average for 726 kms. If I

    I should also note that I've been running taller 175 snow tires for the last week or so. So if you want to get really scientifical, I got may have gotten slightly better than I think? I did note since I swapped tires the mpg meter shows consistently worse economy and it's been getting colder fast.

    I'm sure I could get 800km to a tank(filled to the brim) running stock tires in warm weather only by doing nothing else special.

    Zero regrets here too!

    A lot of people are probably doing the "Most expensive fill up yet" routine lately. I filled my folks' Camry for them the other day and cracked $70 for the first time.
