I've managed 500+ miles per tank trips last weekend and this weekend with my hemi. This is interstate driving of course and at one point last weekend I touched 22 mpg.

Re: The Ultimate Test Drive...

I returned from my trip a couple of weeks ago and neglected to report my follow-up concerning the fuel mileage. I think the EVIC is way off on the mileage estimates. I thought this was some sort of miracle vehicle when I averaged about 80mph on the last leg back into Texas and it reported I was averaging 22mpg. After a fill up, I did a manual calculation and came up with 15mpg. Calculated it one final time before turning it back in to National and the EVIC reported 25mpg...manual calc came up with 17mpg. Anyone else see similar results? That still doesn't deter me from grabbing one of these awesome vehicles. Its an SUV after all...

I think it's doing a rolling, though, of your last 30 miles on the default settings (I haven't had mine long enough to check everything, but the bottom line shows that). during my drive, the EVIC was right on for around a 400KM stretch of autobahn-- read 11 Liters per 100 KM, filled up 41 liters.

If you're mixing your driving since the last top-up, that rolling calculation will probably be your difference
