Needless to say, I have been very laid back when it has come publishing my fuel economy logs.Â I’ve received a couple of emails from people asking me if I’ve stopped publishing the logs because I’ve started to get worse gas mileage and I didn’t want to seem like a hypocrite.
Thankfully, this isn’t the case.Â I’m still getting great gas mileage and the only explanation is that I’ve been too lazy to translate my data to words.Â So now that I have a lazy Sunday afternoon to myself, I thought it would be a great idea to go ahead and update my fuel economy logs.
Over the past four months I have driven 7,212.70 miles, used 221.22 gallons of gas and paid, on average, $2.20 per gallon, all of which adds up to an average fuel economy of 32.60 miles per gallon, which is about 12.43% higher than my car’s usual average.
This 12.43% increase in gas mileage equates to a savings of roughly $.27 per gallon, which over the past four months has equated to a total savings of $60.48, which is enough for about two fill ups.
When I combine my four month savings with my prior 24 weeks savings, I’ve saved $175.98 over the past three-quarters of a year.Â And considering gas prices are only going to continue to go up, this number should continue to drastically increase.
