    Filled up the C-Max for the first time since March. I'll be filling up the Camry for the first real test of economy this Thursday when we're driving over 600 miles, mostly highway. We're attending a renewal of vows and reception for a family friend after COVID cancelled the event last year. Don't worry, we're both vaccinated due to work! The Camry is still sitting at just under half a tank and 55.6 indicated MPG over 520 ish miles.

    1265.3 Miles
    203 kWh used = 6.193 gallons equivalent
    6.193 + 12.285 = 18.478 gallons equivalent
    1265.3 / 18.478 = 68.48 MPGe

    50.7 (FCD 53.0) / 103.7 - fairly warm and sunny, 76°F, some A/C

    After unloading the car, popped to gas station as I had 5 miles of range left! After 0.3 miles it said I had Zero range:

    Definitely (both of you)!

    Last night, non-motorway route, temporary traffic lights are still there bit didn't bother detouring them as they've moved up the road a bit and aren't near another junction now, mostly crosswind SSW5, 72°F:
    47.2 (FCD 49.7) / 19.6

    To work this morning, motorway route, crosswind S6, 64°F:
    57.9 (FCD 60.9) / 21.3 - a record for the commute to work, first time the FCD has been over 60!

    Filled up the Camry today! They're calling for severe weather, including hail, so I'm a bit apprehensive about the trip. But too late to back out now, or else we'll lose money on the hotel!

    539.1 miles
    55.6 MPG indicated
    10.029 gallons
    53.75 MPG actual
    3.32% offset

    Also curious is that it was around 1/3 full mark, and yet only has 3.2 gallons remaining in the tank. I wonder how much bigger than the claimed 13.2 gallons it actually is. Don't think Toyota would pull a GM and put a limiter on the tank, but not actually change the size a la Cruze.

    Great bike runs, Gord. Glad you're getting stronger. The commute in the rain wasn't too bad either. :)
