I’ve been driving the Honda Fit (hereafter referred to as DRBOOM) for some 2,000 miles. I’ve been tracking its fuel efficiency for a while, but I haven’t posted anything about it because I wanted the engine to be more broken in before I said anything. At 2,000 miles, I figure it’s broken in well enough to give my gas mileage.
At the last fill-up, I had gotten 37 miles to the gallon.
Booyeah! That’s miles driven since last fill-up divided by the number of gallons required to fill the tank completely. I do a few things to help push that number up, like coast a fair amount when I can (thank you, manual transmission), and I do very little stop-and-go driving thanks to when I go in to work and where I live. But still. 37 miles to the gallon!
