I just logged my best tank to date at 88 MPG.
Today I filled up at Shell with 2.308 gals of gas for $7.68 at 1796 miles on the odometer. The last fuel bar just started to blink at 203 miles and I stopped for gas. If I wanted to run the tank dry I could have easily managed another 50-70 miles making it a grand total of 250 to 270 miles on one tank of gas.
My last tank was my worst so far at 71.4 MPG and it was the only time I filled up at BP Gas. BP Gas can kiss my keister b/c I will never do business with them again. The only other time that I didn't use Shell besides the one time at BP was Stop and Go gas b/c it was an emergency. However, Stop and Go gas was just a couple mpg off of Shell gas.
The morale to the story: Stick with Shell gas, top tier gas or ethanol-free gas if you are lucky enough to have one near you. You will get the best mpg with the best gas. I didn't used to believe in the gas brand hype but now I know better.
