    Is it bad when I lie in wait at gas stations for the guy driving the huge honkin SUV or pickup, splash $30 or $40 into it and exclaim, "Holy @#*(@! Thirty bucks from empty! The gas price must be up again!"

    Just completed a 685km trip to Nelson Bc from Vancouver. Unfortunately, I had to stop for gas in Abbotsford, which meant my total distance traveled was 618 km on the tank. The car *just* went to 1/8th of a tank as I pulled into town. I filled up with 34.5 liters, meaning my fuel economy was 5.59 l/100km's.

    This was with a hitch mounted bike rack with bike, two people in the car, average speed about 95km/h, but at least 4 4500' summits coming from sea level. I'm hoping to be able to make it home on the same tank (see if the wife is OK with this.)

    Driving was spirited, but not erratic. I'm pretty good at milking every MPG I can.

    The mileage computer in the car reads 5.9 l/100km from new (13K km's). Pretty happy with this.

    5 spd S model.

    That 6.6 is decent for almost all town driving.

    Why idling it though? It's got a factory block heater. :P

    Thread: Use your Micra's block heater: save fuel, reduce wear, be more comfortable.
