Gas mileage is improving: We’ve got a long drive to make Saturday (adoption day!), so we topped up the gas tank in our new Fit. Inexplicably, the fuel economy is now up to 40 mpg. Of course, with colder weather approaching, we expect to take a serious hit in fuel efficiency. But for now, we’re lovin’ it!
Second Fuel Fill: The Fit’s trip computer reports that we averaged 38.7mpg over the course of 384 miles. After refueling and doing the math, we actually averaged 38.5mpg doing our normal daily driving. The only downside is that the Fit has quite a small fuel tank, so we will have to refuel every five or six days instead of once a week as had been our custom with the old Camry.
