Tank 226 - 15 March 2K10 - No Good News.

So I refueled yesterday in the chilly drizzle at the local 7-11 that's
right on my way home. I put in 12.252 gallons of gas @$2.759/gallon
(!), which ended up being $33.80, the most money I ever spent on a tank
of gas since October 2008 (yes, 2008!). Fuel economy was a miserable
35.15 mpg.

Plus, the pump wouldn't print out a receipt for me!

I posit that part of the reason for this pitiful performance in fuel
economy was that I had the little red (and not recalled!) Corolla and
used it all weekend to troll two kids around town as the remaining two
in my family were in North Carolina visiting family. So lots of short
trips on a cold engine. Yeah, that's what it was.
