Reset it every time to see the fluctuation in mileage between fill ups, sometimes ill go 50 more miles on a full tank and sometimes I'll go 2 miles over or under....why do you think that is? I'm not Einstein but ill give my own question a whirl. Well lets see I've been using this method for 3 months and I know I haven't gathered enough research with respect to testing this theory of mine but I can guess that if you have a manual transmission you can control your gas consumption allot more than an automatic. Just putting it in neutral vs having to stay in Drive in a automtic will bring positive results to your mileage and your pocket book. Thank me later

Modern vehicles cut the fuel use in PARK back to what it would be in NEUTRAL. On the other hand, if you don't have a modern vehicle, all bets are off.

50 miles? Maybe you should get a locking gas cap. Or maybe it's the way you are figuring your mileage.
