    That's outstanding, Puddlegum.I am dying to hear what you're driving and where. Did I miss that post? Just terrain type... Thanks!

    Thanks, I have a 2000 Toyota Echo I bought as my winter beater. I rarely leave town with it. Winter mileage is okay, but I'm really pleased with the warm weather mileage. It's fairly flat here, rolling Prairie. About 150 feet elevation change total within 20 miles of the city. Yesterday was a low speed road as well, only 50 mph. Most Highways are 60-70

    Outstanding! The Echo provides a good basis on top of which you're doing extremely well. Bravo. I hear you re: winter driving. No one does well with the cold, not even EVs.

    Saturday morning went to outskirts of Nottingham to catch tram into the city for an Achievement Event for youngest daughter. Got to meed Ollie Hynd, GB gold medal winning paralympian swimmer :cool:, 59°F, 14mph headwind S:

    44.8 / 28.5

    Going home in the afternoon, satnav decided to take me on a shorter busier route through a town I usually avoid. A combination of this and part-time A/C dragged mpg down - should have been much better, 73°F, 13mph cross/tailwind SW:

    43.3 / 27.1

    Tank down 0.6 at 46.3 (FCD 48.9) / 302.8 / Range 370 . Guess gauge F__««|««««E . UG down 1.2 at 47.1 / DTE333

    Didn't drive Sunday. Giant is in the shop , rode the Trek to the brewery. 30 oz of premium beer , 1 liter water , 30 miles round trip. Average speed ? Don't ask. But I was pleased with the result , and that's all that matters.
