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

The better question is "Why?"

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.
