    Got a quote from Carvana to sell my Civic to them.
    I will go to Carmax tomorrow to get a quote from them.
    It's been a great car and it has a lot of life left in it at 90K.

    Filled up the Camry while I was running errands. The low fuel light came on at an indicated 19 miles to empty, filled up at 9 miles. Was mostly highway driving, however, there was very heavy rain, and ponding on the highway for around 170 miles of that.

    672.2 miles
    12.516 gallons
    53.71 MPG / 54.0 Indicated MPG = .056%

    TFF, that Camry continues to impress. I suppose you had a little to do with it, too. :D Surprisingly good correlation of the FCD with your fill-up calculations. (last few offsets were 3.32% or better)

    In the Prius today. Feels like home. 71 deg F in Naperville ,
    70 in Elk Grove Village. 35.1 miles , fcd = 66.2 x .943 = 62.4 MPG.
    Right now the plan for the Civic is : drop off bike at Carmax today ,
    lock it up there. Drop off Civic there Wednesday , ride the bike home.
    Only "scattered thunderstorms" are predicted , so I should be able
    to ride between the raindrops the 7 miles home.

    Yes, it would be soccer to those in the USA. Like most sports, I'd rather participate than watch, so I'm with you. :)
