But my city average still sucks. I get 27.7 average when i include the city driving, which I would say counts for about 30% of what I do.
Ew! No one enjoys a 55 mph highway run. I can't help but think driving faster shouldn't be affecting our MPGs as much as it is. I know it will effect it, but this margin is too much for me to swallow.
