    this is important as the type of driving, along w/ speed, traffic congestion, city/highway driving and more can make a 40% difference.

    According to the onboard pc I am getting 15.3 mpg for mixed city/highway.
    When I go on a 60 mile one way trip on the highway driving at 65 mph the pc says 20+ mpg. I am at 4200 foot elevation and drive to 7000 feet regularly in the CA sierra's so that is pretty good for being above sea level and in very mountainous terrain.
    I drive with a light foot and coast often down hills, and I do long rolls to red lights, I am very easy on the brakes.
    I am doing a manual calculation on the next fill up.
