I went out to SE AZ on Thursday, I forgot to get the gallons when I filled (new printer at station doesn't put the gallons on receipt either :( ) but at 1/2 tank I was at 215 miles from fill-up. FWIW, I drive my truck like it was stolen, or rather I like to get up to the posted speed limit instead of grandmaing it to posted speed. I filled up yesterday so as soon as my next paycheck comes I'll recalc. mileage. I also need to do an oil change, my sythetic's at about 7400 miles.
Well, I had to pick up a friend from the airport tonight so I figured I'd gas up on the way home. Stopped at the station with exactly 231.0 miles. She took 11.905 gallons....

231.0/11.905 = 19.4 mpg, that's combined city and highway. And as the above says, I drive like the truck was stolen (at times).
