for anyone looking into their mileage, how to improve it, why it varies so damn much, etc... wrap your heads around this article. start thinking gallonage.

mileage vs gallonage

Thanks. That was good reading.
I believe the article, but there are still more factors in gas mileage than they mentioned.

For example, I have a 5-speed, and my trips are 1.9 city miles (my daily commute to/from work). And I get around 25-26mpg. Marty (basilisk4) who lives 30 miles away from me (same climate) has an automatic (higher EPA ratings on mileage), longer commute, and still gets crappy 21-22mpg. Both of us can be considered leadfoots.
i get about 25MPG and i'm definitely a leadfoot.. i have mixed driving.. highway with bad traffic areas and local roads.. so far my tC has been treating me good.. in this area
90% of my driving occurs at an average speed of under 20 MPH.

Okay, it makes more sense now.
^^^ what was that, marty?
