johnnymac2k6 is on a distinguished road

driving about a 10 mile round trip to work everyday, i'm milking it for 12 city. i don't get above 45 mph on the entire trip...and if i hammer on it it hardly fluctuates. in my opinion it's the fact that at a red light, or when sitting still, it continues to read that it is sucking gas without moving....i can go outside and start mine with 13.5 on the ticker, and come back after 1 min to find it fell to 10.0...i guess that is "real" mpg considering it's still using fuel. i think my ticker is pretty accurate as long as you're not stopping continuously, i haven't calculated mpg by hand yet.
