32.6 Mpg!!!

98 miles on 3.009 gallons of fuel. it was "premium" with a good shot of power service artic service conditioner. it has to be a fluke, but it is the truth, and I will probably never repeat it again

Congratulations, but that's too small of a sampling (1/7 of tank?) to be considered useable data. Then again, whatever makes you feel good.

I agree that it is silly, but why could it pull down that economy only for just a little while.(what ever it took I would gladly do again) My normal is around 24 and best full tank was 27. All of which is kinda all over the place considering I have only put 2000 mile on the car.

98Miles/3,009 Galons = .032 MPG. That's the lowest MPG I have ever seen. Only to be beaten by the Queen Mary II, which gets .018 MPG.

Just kidding, I know its a typo. (Is it?)

He wrote 3 and 9 thousandths of a gallon, not 3 thousand and 9 gallons....
