I think Sonoma drives a million miles a week. Therefore he'* usually up at cruising speed for a bunch of miles.

In my case I'm accelerating and decellerating w/in 25 miles. Work is only like 23 miles. MPG can only be good if you are rolling along gallon after gallon w/o accel and decel.

Still overall it'* good and Haro.. I'm right there w/ya buddy. I got Boost and I'm using.

When I was commuting to Boston I averaged 25-27 MPG. About 410 miles before a refill cause I'd rather drive than push.

Now, I drive the company truck daily and take the wife'* Grand Am if we are together. Super is over $3 here now so I try to limit extra travel.
