Great writeup BTW

Thanks Johnny,

Haven't gotten a fuelly account yet since I really can't do any driving for a little while.

The trip computer actually reads a couple MPG low in the d. It seems to reach a point where it does not update on a regular basis if you don't reset it.

It always reads lower than what I actually get when I do the math. At least for long trips. (i.e. the last leg, car said 37.9 - real consumption was 39.24) All the consumptions listed, except the ones I state were from the car, were pump verified.
