Do you know what's better the a manufacture's quoted fuel economy?

A: The actual fuel economy of an actual car.

Vliet is the Dutch term for "minor streaming water." But if you click the link above, you won't get anything water related. Instead, you'll get real numbers from a real car on its real consumption of fuel. Every number, as I recorded it into my notebook at the gas station.

You can look at my calculations, how much I'm paying per gallon, per mile; how far I'm traveling per gallon, per tank; how fast I drive (on average), how long I go between fill-ups. With a little math of your own, you can even estimate how far I drive each day, or how long I drive in consecutive time.

Don't like my rounding errors? Think I should round up instead where I rounded down? Leave a comment, here or on the spreadsheet. Eddie and I would love to hear from you.
