Tank 216 - 3 December 2009

The Thanksgiving holiday weekend delayed my eventual refueling
experience until last Thursday, where once again I refilled at the
convenient Exxon of Woodbridge and put in 11.750 gallons of gas. I had
gone 437.69 miles on that tank, so my fuel economy was a poor 37.27 mpg.

Now it is quite cold outside and I suspect my mileage will suffer even
more.

But I also really need to get the timing belt replaced. It's been
81,000 miles on the original belt that came with the car, and I really
think I am just on borrowed time here.

Time is running out for me to catch up with my all time annual fuel
economy record. I better start driving like a grandma again...
