*48.4 MPG so far

I think you are correct gomar. However wanted to test on my own to see.
Bizzybear; Didn't do too well at fishing, cold front moved in while camping. So told wife to get another trip together and were going again this weekend.
So far I'm 2 bars above 1/2 tank, 263.1 miles, 48 MPG. Just a short update will put up all numbers after this tank. It looks like hyper-miling is what got me to the big 50 numbers.

*3281 tot miles
*46.9 MPG
*392.3 miles on this tank
*103 miles to go (range)
*1/4 tank of fuel left
*80% oil life

Although the range says 103 miles to go, I am pretty sure I will get over 500 miles on this tank. With 5 bars left on the fuel guage I should be able to make it another full trip plus a half one. Which will be another 120 miles. And once again I also think the manual calculation will be better than what the computer is reading as far as the MPG's.
I put these numbers out now b/c I will be gone for another 4 days fishing again (can't get enough). Will update again Thurs. or mabey Fri. if all goes good.

Probably not. However I could send you the video. lol. Now that the kids are gone we get to do whatever WE want. And if we didn't have these damb dogs we would fly all over the world. Well, gotta go get the camper and load it. If we have better luck I'll try to get some pics. I know this is a car forum, no worries I'm sure I'll get a car in it somehow lol. Later

No dougal. I have never towed the Z. All my numbers are actual driving conditions to and from work.

Final numbers are in:

*3359 tot miles
*471.1 miles on this tank
*47.0 MPG reading on comp.
*16 miles left on range
*one bar on fuel guage
*still 80% oil life

Filled tank tonight instead of before work tommarrow. Put 9.502 gals of REG. unleaded in, with 471.1 miles on tank comes out to 49.579 MPG. Very happy with these numbers since I quit the hyper-miling off the hwy. Maybe the premium fuel made up for this but i do not know. Next tank will be all same except on reg feul, and will increase tires to 42-45 nitro psi everything else will remain the same.:hi5:
