About a week ago I posted the techniques I use to increase my car’s efficiency. Well I have been doing them for a while now and I finally filled up. Sean, from Financial Ramblings , and I both participated in my challenge to see how much better over EPA estimates we could get. The results are finally in and here they are:
EPA: 26 mpg
% over EPA = 23.4%
(Yea that’s my car. Well mine isn’t really quite that nice but it a picture of the same model. Fancy isn’t it.)
EPA: 29 mpg
% over EPA = 12.16%
And the winner is Sean by a landslide. He did very well and congratulations to him. I really don’t see what else I could have done better. I think my car does need a tune up. I kind of tend to neglect it a lot. Maybe I will try this again later if I get a tune up or do something nice for my car. It has been reliable for years and I owe it something nice.
