Tank 134 - 15 October 2007

So this morning I had the opportunity to refuel at the Fredericksburg
Costco. Filled up with 11.112 gallons after going 423.7 miles, making
for an average fuel economy of 38.13 mpg for this tank.

The Low Fuel light came on for good at 408 miles.

This was the Mighty Corolla's 35th tank for the year. Last year's 35th
tank came much earlier, on September 26, 2006. Mileage for that tank
was 37.55 mpg.

After 35 tanks last year, I has spent $880.18 on gas. After 35 tanks
this year, it is 909.99. But if you go be calendar date, Overall gas
expense was $931.11 on October 17, 2006, and $909.99 on October 15,

Miles travelled is pretty close as well. On October 17, 2006, I had
gone 13,844.7 miles, and as of today in 2007, I have gone 13,837.2
miles. I will have gone more miles by the 17th of October, though.

For calendar year 2006, gasoline averaged $2.378 per gallon. This year,
it's averaged $2.492 so far, about 11.4 cants more per gallon. Gas did
go up in price over the last two months of 2006, however it was on a
down trend as 2005 closed out, so there is no pattern there. We shall
see how overall cost works out.

I predict 43 tanks of gas this year. Last year ended with 46.
