Getting good mileage!

I feel it necessary to give a shout out to my 2002 Echo. I've always known it's good on gas, but this past week I put it to the test. After I filled it up, I set the Trip monitor to measure how many kilometres I could get from a full tank.

And then I drove....

I drove around the city, to the airport and back, to Peggy's Cove and back, and to the Valley and back. Not bad! I put 549 kms with all the driving I did this past week, and still had gas in the tank (about 1/8th a tank).

With gas at 1.387, and no likelihood of going down anytime soon, I'm very grateful for my little fuel-efficient car.

I can dig it. I'm going almost twice as far on a litre since I had my "hey I live in Alberta, why shouldn't I have a" truck written off and replaced it with a 1.6 litre Honda Civic, and it sure make me happy at the pumps. No more big vehicles for me.
