The EPA estimates and manufacturers' are a good barometer BUT, what MPG/MPL did you really get on your last tank of fuel?

Yeah sometimes I use Plastic...Usually when I'm buying 50-75 gallons of a mixture of fuel (Regular/Premium/Diesel)... Pain in the a$$ to run back and forth to the cashier multiple times...

I live in the "Boonies" so the local retailers "Gouge" on the prices so I keep "stocked up"...

Most of the time I just pay cash...regardless of whether there's a discount or not.
I try and use each card once/twice a year to keep them active. I very seldom carry a credit card. (Only when travelling) I cancelled all debit cards...

It's amazing just how many people have lost the ability of counting money, especially counting back change. LOL

We're about as different as daylight and dark....

THat's pretty good price OldHillbillyAZ... I rarely pay cash, don't carry enough with me to do so, and usually not worth the difference, since I get cash back on my credit card purchases....

bikergirlss, Since the Volt is an Electric and Gas vehicle, how many times are you filling up on electricity???

Better because gas prices are falling some, that helps always. I believe I'm right no heavy calculations needed, just lower prices makes it simple no matter what you drive. Happy motoring!

I am averaging north of 31 mpg on my V-6 diesel sedan that is EPA rated 23/32.

2008 M-B E320

Last 5 tanks...

33.01
32.00
35.39
32.93
31.58

The lower overall mpg average is due in large part to lower winter fuel economy.

Don't know what MPG it was getting but..... I followed a Smart Fourtwo for approx.
40 miles @ 80MPH+...That little thing was a chittin and a gittin it. It was zipping by trucks and holding perfect lane placement. It was the first time I'd seen one above 45 MPH.

Traveling at those speeds sure caused me to get worse mileage though....
Temperature as high as 109 degrees (A/C was 100% of the time)
45.9 MPG 2013 Passat TDI (EPA 30/34/40)
