Many of us log gas consumption (e.g. MPG or L/km), but how many of you also track the amount of your city and highway driving?

a) I track city and highway driving
b) I don't track city and highway driving but I would like to
c) I don't track city and highway driving and I don't care to

I just started tracking so my answer is a), though I'm just guesstimating. I don't have a good system for accurate tracking.

Yes, really no difference. Speeds @ 65 or more lower MPG's too much.

We often track our mileage, both city and interstate.

with freeways and road construction this would be a useless exercise -- I get 47+ on straight Interstate driving and 41 average otherwise - good enough for me!

No real difference with my manual equipped Toyota. Our auto equipped Hyundai gets about 10 MPG less in city driving.

It is almost impossible to track city and highway driving per se. Just when are you driving within city limits and when you're not is very difficult in many cases to know.

I keep track of my driving very closely but I define "city driving" as miles at less than 50 MPG and "highway driving" as 50 MPH or more.

My currant monthly gasoline bills have been $10.-$17. lower than my household heating gas bill, therefore I don't worry about my mileage economy. The difference amounts so far, I use to pay for routine other auto necessary mileage maintenance/supplies.

Still I drive with fuel conservation in mind almost daily, being retired I seldom have a hurried attitude when driving, really drive even less for less annual total mileage on all vehicles.

I have tracked it in the past, no need to now. I can always tell on a monthly basis when I have more green $ to spend on other shopping items when gas prices along with transportation cost(driving) are way less per month and allows that to happen even a recreational day to explore away from home, affordable from a regular harnessed budget........
