and the most consistent way to see your average mpg.. is to fill from the same pump everytime. that way the auto shut off stops at a more consistent place everytime. each pumps auto shut off varies based on their sensor.
True, but I count the gallons I fill up with (which is usually around 10-12 gallons total) then caculate mpg based on that I used next time I fill up from the trip odometer.
