Tank 354 - 1 July 2K13
I refilled the tank in the Mighty Corolla yesterday on my way home at the Wawa out Rt 3. 11.274 gallons, 401.2 miles, so fuel economy was 35.59 mpg. Given that last tank was over 38 mpg, and my suspicion that I was victim to a pump that shut off prematurely to falsely inflate my mileage, I was expecting a larger dropoff.
Indeed, my mileage for this tank is still above my average for the year. On the other hand, my mileage for the year has only been worse in 2004, when the car was brand new and had 5 tanks of gas. Wow.
