how do you figure 12.85....
How is easy, math.

The better question is "Why?"


Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

My thoughts exactly.... We are driving a brick, its MPG is going to suck, so why would I want to confirm it by using math

i understand that.. im saying why would you ever break it down to 12.85 and such. It's like a mpg pissing contest lol

My jeep is my daily driver. I drive 52 miles per day round trip to work. I am in college and am piss poor. When the gas light comes on and I have only driven 185 miles to the tank, I notice. I usually get 210 miles before the gas light comes on. At this point in time funds are tight, therefore I am trying to squeeze as many mpg outta the heep as I can.

Explanation good enough for ya?

I have about the same commute, but being in Canada, my wage is probably higher (although gas is a bit higher too).

I think it's interesting at least, we are not going to get great gas mileage, but it's still interesting to see the differences.
