After driving my car home from work tonight between 11:30 and 11:45, and gaining 0.2mpg despite the fact that I'm already 3/4 of the way through the tank, I believe I have discovered a new facet of Sartre.

Bad gas mileage is other people.

How did it go that low?!

I still run 30mpg here, despite most of my trips being taken in stop-and-go commutes on 66. I consider this a minor miracle.

It was around 37.6 at the start, and 37.8 after I arrived home.

Interesting, I guess there really isn't that much mileage gain between the regular Civic and the hybrid version. I've been getting about 34 miles per gallon these past few weeks.

Hehe, sounds like someone's an aggressive driver. ^^ Also, it seems like it would make sense for your mileage to increase as the tank empties, because there's less weight for the engine to propel.
