Dude, you can't assume anything. The only way to get accurate results is to fill the tank until the pump shuts itself off. Reset your trip meter to zero. Then at your next fill up, fill until the pump shuts itself off and then divide the mileage shown on your trip meter by the number of gallons you just put in. That's you MPG.mfjonny said:When I drive around town (which consists of back and forth from school and work, about 5~10 miles each way), I get about 200 to 250 miles to the tank. But then again, when i drive down from Berkeley to Los Angeles, crusing at about 80 to 85mph, i go the entire strech of 400 miles on a single tank. Assuming about 3 gallons are left before my fuellight comes on, that figures in at about 27 mpg on straight highway...
Wallstrum,wallstrum said:i have always wondered if there is some difference between the coupe and sedan... i had a '95 6-speed coupe before, and i would get ~300-350 miles to a tank with city driving, and ~400-450 miles to a tank on the freeway. now, with my '94 6-speed gs sedan, i am getting ~250 city, and ~350 highway per tank. this is a *huge* discrepancy between the two, and the only difference between the cars (besides the obvious coupe/sedan) is that i have an intake and remus on my sedan now.
a couple of other things... grahn and bread were right about determining gas mileage - you have to do it like that in order to get an accurate figure. otherwise, you have no way of telling how much gas you actually used. cakedaddy - i found out by experience that our cars have an 18 gallon tank : ) i filled up at one point and put in 17.6 gallons (the fuel light had been on for a while...).
