50 mpg!

May 25, 2007

I track my fuel economy on a per-trip basis. Today, on my way home, I managed to coax my vehicle down to using only 5.7L/100km, which I managed to keep all the way home. This, by far, is my best fuel economy ever!

Of course, a post entitled “5.7L/100km!” just doesn’t have any sort of ring to it… luckily, 5.7L/100km corresponds to 50 mpg Imperial, which DOES have quite a nice sound to it!

Remember, this was done with no advanced driving techniques; just driving slowly (just over the posted speed limit, actually) and coasting whenever possible. Go ahead – give it a try!

    Actually, 50 mpg equals 4.7 l/100km, while 5.7 l/100km is somehwere around 42mpg. Which still has a nice ring to it 🙂
