It'll get the MPG's back up the longer you drive it without shutting if off.
Over the summer, we took my Mothers car to our cabin up north. When we left the house, the computer in the car said she was getting an average 15ish MPG.
On the way up, the computer started to read more in the 20's and when i reset it on the way home, it got around 33 MPG on the highway
