    I'd still push it to the limit. And my wife would still scream at me for doing it. Same anxiety. Just less often.

    Nice. I'd love to have something like this for the trips from LA to Sacramento we make a few times a year.

    Nice odometer reading, too bad it's not closer to July 4th!

    750 is a nice prediction. I'm curious to see what real-world mileage you can get on a long highway trip. Per your last fuel economy update you've never gotten anywhere near the car's highway rating of 40 mpg on a full tank.

    I think maybe 1776 miles on the odometer is a little early to start looking for max fuel economy performance. Also, to get the car's highway rating on a full tank, you would probably have to go on a 750-mile highway trip - ? At 1776 miles total the likelihood of having taken a road trip that long is low.

    do you normally reset the trip meter after every fill-up?

    In other words, is the actual range closer to 800 miles?
