I've been consistantly getting 42-43 mpg ever since then.

Now all of a sudden this morning I filled up and what do you know, I got 48.6!!


Yes indeed the weather both temperature (improved atomization) and dry roads (less friction) plus driving in daylight (reduced load on the alternator) will give this result.

Winter gas is different than summer gas, not sure when the switch over is.

So he timed it just right and got "summer gas" I doubt that. It's the weather my car is going further on a tank too. I'm also driving my car harder then ever. I gave up on hypermiling when I noticed I got the same mileage going 55 that I do when I go 65-70. 50MPg's just fine by me.
