Wow. That is anal but it's also very informative. The total cost of the gas is scary. Your link doesn't work though.
cohee3 said:I record every tank of gas that goes in my Titan. Attached is a graph I used to do a little analysis. I do not believe that you can judge gas mileage by a single tank - or maybe even two. You need to look at trends and averages because there are so many variables at each fill-up. I made a recent 2,000 mile trip pulling a trailer and got about 11.3 mpg (the big dip) on the trip. Here are some frightening stats during 49,389 miles of pleasurable driving.
Total # of gallons: 3,285.2
Total cost: $7,480.89
Max tank MPG (almost irrevelant): 17
Min tank MPG (almost irrevelant): 10.8
Average MPG (discounting recent trip): 15.2
Average MPG (overall): 15.0
Max fill-up: 23.2 gallons
Max tank cost: $66.67
Average tank cost: $41.56
Max cost per gallon: $3.20
Min cost per gallon: $1.50
Average cost per gallon: $2.28
Note that my mileage dipped for a good while at around 16K miles - unknown reason. I do know that my wife drove it (and filled it up) for a few tanks during the beginning of this period. Since about 35K miles, it has been higher - unknown reason. I do not know what I am doing differently to get the mileage up to about 16 MPG. At around 39K miles, I had some routine dealer service/maintenance done. At 45K miles, I replaced the OEM tires with new Revos. I also reset my ECU about the same time. There does seem to be some correlation of higher gas mileage during hunting season. Normally I commute in the truck about 17 miles each way. During hunting season (two plus months), I make a trip each weekend about 65 miles each way.
Nope. My message footer has them all. Essentially just a DNX-7100 and Revos.anmut said:Any significant mods on your truck?
The link is actually a MS Word document with a picture of a graph from an Excel spreadsheet. I did not have any utilities here to make the graph a jpeg. The link should work if you have Word.Quartz said:Wow. That is anal but it's also very informative. The total cost of the gas is scary. Your link doesn't work though.
It works for me, good postcohee3 said:The link is actually a MS Word document with a picture of a graph from an Excel spreadsheet. I did not have any utilities here to make the graph a jpeg. The link should work if you have Word.
Very well put.redneckpapa1996 said:I don't even waste brain cells on it anymore...It's a bigass heavy truck with a bigass motor and that equals bad gas mileage.....Just drive it and enjoy!!!!
