wow.. just wow.

The best I have gotten is 34.

Nothing is flat around here...and lots of other cars mean a steady 65-70mph cruise control on the highway doesn't last long, in the least congested hours, plus its rarely flat anyways.

Yeah - don't wear that thing out before you trade it in.
I'm never trading this one. When I retire it from daily driving duties, it will remain in the fleet. I've never liked a car more. I also have no immediate plans to retire it from daily driving duties. :)

That was with the cruise set at 62 or 63.

Last tank was a whole 32.44 - but we also had our 25 minute all-city commute home turn into a god-awful 1.75 hour drive through a snowstorm on unprepped roads. So probably 75% of that time was spent idling, and my wife managed to get the car stuck for about 10 minutes (I was driving the Cav home at the same time, and she turned down a side street for absolutely no reason). So it's pretty clear fuel economy took an insane hit here.

Congrats Diesel on over 60 mpg. My 50 mile best is 57 something and my engine isn't even close to broken in yet. My observations so far is warmer weather seems to help the fuel econ a lot. I am just amazed at the distance I can drive on a full tank of fuel, this weekend I drove to Chicago and back, had 521 miles and used 11.25 gal of fuel and was just at 1/2 on the gauge and I could have gone way over 800 miles no problem, probably many more. I love the car, my only issue is the seats. I see myself driving this car a lot and enjoying it.

Oh and at 1.59 a gallon and $18 to fill that was like 3.45 cents/mile which is incredible.

Diesel have you changed your timing belt yet?
I was forced to at 145K by whining tensioner or something. It didn't break or anything, just made a whining noise that I thought would probably be in my best interest to address. Otherwise, I would probably still be running the original!

THESE LITTLE CARS ARE AMAZING. Almost to 100,000 miles on mine and its not much different now for mileage than when younger.. I got my very best scores between 16,000 and 24,000 miles but still manage to come close every so often..My best numbers also come with the cruise set around 62 mph
