MPG has gone up finally, i just turned 15,000 miles on my odometer & yesterday i took a 260 miles trip & when i filled up today, i filled the tank again, put in 13.3 gallons
i drove over a small mountain range, the Laguna Mountains, between san diego & el centro Ca. there are 3 places where the highway goes up to 4,000 elevation, & the desert floor is at or below sea level, going down the last hill into the desert, its a 6% grade for 9 miles, a quick check while going down that grade showed my average mpg 25.8 MPG, but, the mid 18 mpg was the readout most of the trip
260 miles by 13.3 gallons = 19.5 MPG if i did the math right
