Which would suck (if correct). I do a strictly-city commute. About 3.15 miles each way, 4 trips/day. (To and fro + lunch trip). About 6 stop signs/lights.

The console readout shows 18.5 mpg. I usually hover around 18-22mpg on the dash. And can get it up to 24-25 on a longish road trip (180mi to my parents house and back).

It could be a combination of the misfire problem I had + the fact that I only put 12 gallons in (tank was on E before and full after but I would guess their is some tank capacity beyond E and F that kinda thew off the numbers. I can usually get some miles on a tank beyond E but I filled up right as soon as it hit E this time.).

And also I drive like an asshole sometimes.

Have you guy's had your cars tuned yet ? Most of us get better mpg with a tune.
