Lessee lotsa driving over the weekend. Mostly Highway at 80-90 MPH with the top down, a few stints near 60-70 MPH....plus five autocross runs and related idling...an Elise "demo" ride, an hour 15 minutes in slow stop and go Sunday night along with some around town driving throughout. 243 miles, 8 1/4 gallons. That's 29 and change and I thought that this tank might yield crummy mileage. It's certainly easy to beat the EPA 23 city 27 Highway. When just piddling around you can skip-shift as in 1-3-5. And 6th is useable pretty often as the car is so light. Maybe the EPA rates the Elise for 50% street and 50% Track fuel mileage or something.
