Tracking Long Distance Gas Mileage

July 20th, 2008 at 06:29 pm

I visited with family for an enjoyable three days on the Jersey shore.

We fit in some blueberry picking and a trip to Island Beach State Park.



In my last post, i talked about how I got 39.4 miles to the gallon with my 99 Honda Civic HX. I clocked the mileage driving down to the Jersey shore. It's a three-hour trip one way. It was all highway driving but I took pains to maintain an average 60 mph and was curious to see how I'd do on this trip compared to the 39.4 miles per gallon I got driving my daily commute.

I'm happy to report I got 42.6 miles to the gallon. I chalk it up to hardly any any braking.
