I know drew keeps a spreadsheet of all his cars :p which is completely overboard.

Below is a quick snapshot of mine. On average, I get between 14-18mpg and around 250-300 miles to a full tank. This makes an EV with 250-300 mile range a good deal, for DD.

No, I'm not going EV anytime soon, but I would give it a good consideration next time.

25 city/31 highway for the celica GTS 6mt.... I average about 25 I'd say, the trip home from Austin to Boston I calculated 33 average. haven't been paying much attention since, it does well though, has a large-ish 15 gallon tank so it has a fairly large 400-500 mile range.

I think I average about how many threads you make a day.

55-60 over 112 mi round trip daily in a 2020 Kia Niro PHEV, includes fully charging (once) an 8.9 kWh battery (at roughly $0.09/kW overnight). with fuel around $3.60/gal, it's just under $8 per day. Not bad for the mileage, but wish I had a full EV instead.

Both cars get 93 octane (not required).

My lifetime avg (6600mi) in the F-150 is 17.4 MPG. The lifetime avg for the Explorer (2500mi) is 19.2 MPG. My ass hole already hurts thinking about oil hitting $100/bbl this summer which apparently is a good possibility. Buckle up! Lol.

I checked it against the trip computer and it's pretty accurate at about 20-25 mpg depending on how heavy my foot is, '07 Passat VR6 4Motion.

The Type R averages 24ish MPG for me. Not bad at all, but it has a pathetically small tank, so I never go more than 300 miles on a tank.

My '16 QX50 is good for 17-20mpg over the 4 mile, never-warms up, sits at stop lights with a stop in the middle driving I mostly do these days. Right now it's 17mpg season. Yay. 20 or so in the summer. I don't really drive it on the highway much, but when I do it'll get 27mpg or so.

'18 Rav4 hybrid is 29-34, again, depending on the season. City vs. highway doesn't matter.
