I was traveling with an ex of mine to an art show on Saturday and I told her that I had just finished my first year of the Riot for Austerity. I told her how I computed my gas usage by estimating 23 miles per gallon. She told me that my mileage was averaging 28 miles per gallon, not 23. That changes my gas consumption to:
Auto Gas (for July-June) was 186.689* gallons. This is…
…down 62.67% (313.35 gallons) from the national average.
* I had the July and August of 2007 numbers, and the oil tag that gave the mileage of the last oil change in mid-August of ‘07. When I subtracted the mileage from August of ‘07 from my current mileage, I had 3,943 miles (yeah, it’s past time to get my oil changed.) Back when I kept better track of mileage, etc. I got roughly 28 miles to the gallon. If I assume that is correct still, and add in the full July and August numbers from last year, I end up with 186.689 gallons of gas used.
I realize this isn’t exact – but it should be pretty close.
