    Hey, even when adjusted down to 50, that's still noteworthy in cold weather. Kudos. :)

    Today in the Honda , 25 deg F in Naperville when I got to work.
    35.1 miles , fcd = 44.3 MPG. Taking highway home . it won't
    be much warmer at 3:00 when I leave here. If I get 45 MPG
    on the way home , I won't cry.

    Not sure if I posted this last week : After 5500 miles of
    driving the Honda since I bought it in June , oil life is at 50%.
    I am going to do exactly what I did with my 08 Civic : follow
    the Maintenance Minder. When it says 5% oil life remaining , I will
    change oil then.

    Yesterday , going home in the Prius ( scenic route )
    I did 32.1 miles, fcd = 66.9 x .943 = 63.1 MPG.
    It was a tiny bit warmer then , but not much.
    A lot better than the 52 MPG ( thirsty route ) on the way to work.

    I'll be tired later... have to work the job then deal with the winter storm that's still dropping snow in New England. Temperatures are in the upper teens so at least not wet and heavy.
