You might want to reconsider driving the fuel tank so low. The fuel acts as a heat conductor and coolant for the fuel pump. Doing what you do will shorten the life of the fuel pump. Especially on hot days. Look up the price of a new fuel pump. It will scare you. It might **** the bed before the warranty is up, but then again, it might just make it a few thousands miles out of warranty.

If what you say is true, even though if I drive with the tank low, there is always gas left in it to cool off the pump. I never drive till the engine stall, I fill up before that.

My 2013 coupe, manual, gets 44-46 MPG on the highway, with A/C on low and 70 MPH (shown on computer) and 35 MPG combined with city.

xliter/100km multiplied by 9.7976 is american MPG

Don't think this is correct. MPG and liters/100km are inversely related (one goes up as the other goes down) so you have to do a division, not a multiplication, to get from one from the other. The unit you're converting from has to be the denominator in a calculation, not a numerator.

A clever way to convert in either direction is to divide 235 by one unit and you get the other. IOW, to convert 10 liters/100km to mpg...

235/10 = 23.5 mpg

And it works the other way. To convert 30 mpg to liters/100km...

235/30 = 7.83 liters/100km

Or use one of the online calculators - they're all over the place.

Definately agree with the whole getting the engine broken in, I have about 5200kms on my 2013 Elantra stick and get about 34-36 mpg's at the moment. Don't get me wrong that's highway only right now it significally drops in city, however I'm not shifting when Eco always says to for best mileage it's still great on gas so I haven't worried too much.. In the past I've built a handfull of 5.0l engines for Mustang's so they are bullet proof for nitrous etc., point being at first they are all crazy hard on fuel especially when you have to run 94 octane! When they all got up to 15 or 20 thousand kms they were all getting great mileage for that car it's the same for any engine things aren't as tight I guess you could say and once you've had a few oil changes you'll notice a dramatic change in your fuel economy!

Or my IRL faux pas, lol. I was at work the other day and a lady asked me where the Jewish-themed fabric was. I led her to it, and it just so happens that all of the Jewish fabric is white and blue, except for one bolt with some menorahs on it. The lady asked me if we had any other Jewish fabric which was NOT white and blue, and I told her we could always check to see if the fabrics came in any other colors online. I was like, "Yeah, I wonder why they're all blue and white..."

The lady was like, "Those are the colors of Israel's flag."

Which I knew. But somehow the connection went right over my head. D'oh!
