Oil Change and better mileage

Had the oil changes when it got to 15%. that was around 10,000 miles.

The dash reading for mileage (mpg) is is now hovering around 37 mpg. A jump since the oil change.

I'm also not filling up the tank and never put in more than 5 gallons. Less weight leads to better mileage.

Great car.

Haven't filled up in awhile

Gas mileage is averaging 33.5 using the dash reading. With the real mileage, based on past reading, a few miles a gallon lower.

So 30 plus miles a gallon is not that bad.

Honda Fit vs. Ford Focus

Honda Fit vs. Ford Focus:Small cars are all the rage these days, thanks to their infrequent need to visit the gas pump. But many of today's gas sippers have other great qualities to appreciate. Such is certainly the case in today's matchup: the Honda Fit and Ford Focus.

Mileage Report October 20, 2008

32.88 mpg
317.6 miles on 9.659 gallons of gas at $2.85 a gallon.

The on screen average shows 36.3.5 mpg.

Appears that the actual mileage differs from the on screen mileage by around 4 mpg.

Mileage Mix: Mostly highway. But, I did use the paddle shifters in shpor mode one day around town and that drops the mileage down a bit.

Mileage Report October 14, 2008

30.93 (31) mpg
256.8 miles on 8.301 gallons of gas at $2.99 a gallon.

Seems to be a big difference in what the on screen average says in the car vs. the actual mileage.

The on screen average shows 37.9 mpg. Don't know if my math is off or the gas at the station that this fill-up was from is not that great. I'll have to keep an eye on this one. Might just have to pay a few cents more and get it from the Wawa

More mileage numbers with more around town driving driving.

2006 Honda Fit Concept Car

This is a tricked out Honda Fit created by Honda for the 2006 SEMA Auto Show.

I have a page on out new 2009 Fit that I place several of the images for this car. We are late to the game on this car - but it is so cool looking that I wanted to post about it. Check it out for some additional cool images.

I would love to trick out our fit with some TSW Trackstar 4 wheels.
