way home. After going 433.4 miles, I squeezed in 11.581 gallons of
regular unleaded gasoline, making for a fuel economy of 37.42 miles per
gallon for the tank. This is just 0.03 miles per gallon better than my
2008 average, so I guess that's good. But I am running out of time to
raise my annual fuel economy average to beat the reigning high average
that was set in 2007.
Thanksgiving week is upon us, so this tank should last for a while,
seeing on how I am just driving to work twice this week.
This was my 37th tank of the year. Last year I had 38 tanks of gas
total. With this tank, I surpassed my total miles driven from last
year, and have driven 15,477 miles so far this year. Yeesh! That's a
lot of miles.
However, I have spent a lot less on gasoline this year: $894.77 on 37
tanks, vs. $1,229.20 on 37 tanks of gas last year. That's like almost
27% less spent on gas this year.
