my last tank was 186 lol.

I never drive it unless i go out for the weekend ends. so it's start drive a few miles then park it.

i tried that don't rev past 2.5-3k but it never works out. I always end up reving to 6k.

Averaging about 26 mpg, as usual. Thank God gas went down a bit, finally I'm not paying over $3 a gallon for premium anymore.
