I hope you like charts because I got a couple up for this week’s Fuel Challenge Check In.
My Fuel Challenge Review
- 1st week: 27.3 mpg
- 2nd week: 22.8 mpg
- 3rd week: 25.9 mpg
- 4th week: 25 mpg
While I’m around average as far as my miles per gallon stats compare to other Accord drivers, there is still room for improvement.
Gas Fuel-Ups Cheaper
Right now gas prices having been decreasing during May and with my last fill up at Costco, regular gas was about $3.45/gallon. I’m still not calling it cheap, but I’m happy it’s moving away from $4/gallon that we were inching towards the other month. While I can’t control pump at the price much, I can focus on deceasing my cost per mile.
Monthly Reviews of Driving
I had so much fun with keep track of my driving this month that I’ve decided to continue doing a monthly review of my stats. I think it’s a fun way to keep myself focused on increasing my gas mileage and decreasing my car’s expenses. I also hope it’ll help others to do the same.
I’ve done monthly review of our net worth over at Couple Money for the last couple of years and it’s been incredibly helpful for us (and from the feedback for others too). If you already do a monthly reviewing of your driving stats, please send me a link and I’ll include it as part of a round-up each month.
