Not anymore as I barely drive but when I did I was a real active tracker about it, never let it get in the way of enjoying my car or doing anything stupid like hypermiling and tailgating but I liked to see how things effected it and what my real world avg broke too.

Now a tank can last a few months so it's really not a big deal to me, I do keep an eye at miles to tank incase it sinks a huge amount I'll look at the car and see if any issues or I just was lead foot.

Only reason I might would be to see if the car is running poorly. But since this thing called OBDII that's kind of useless because I would hope the car would notice first.

S2k: Do the mental math on fill-up. Although now that 90% of my driving is the same commute, it's always 23.x mpg. Very good for a sports car but pretty weak for a 2.0L 2,800lb car. Short gearing + high-rpm breathing are not mpg-friendly.

M5 i just look at the trip computer, which is about 0.2-0.5mpg optimistic (there's a way to adjust it, but I can't be bothered). Although it's pretty pointless because it basically tells me what % city/highway I've driven since it gets literally double on the highway vs. city. Current average: 18mpg.

My dad's '13 Accord has the huge mpg display and green light eco "coach", so since it's just a plain old Accord I try to milk mpg from it. Got 40.0mpg exactly on a 40-min trip to the airport on Christmas. Solid!

Yes, VR6 24v 2.8L engines can be thirsty. I want to know what I'm getting.

This. And I always reset the avg mpg and avg mph every fillup too, and even always fill up at the same gas station.

I drive 100 miles a day for work, and just bought an obdII bluetooth adapter and track everything with my phone (torque app).

It is winter in WI, and I am experimenting with blocking off portions of my grill, and will be making a HAI to warm up the air coming into the engine.

I plan on making a air damn and kamback to see if I can lesson my cod.

I never really cared until I noticed piece of **** 370Z 3.7 VQ gets worse mileage than a V8. Unacceptable getting 13-15 mpg in the city in a non V8.

I write the mileage on every receipt at fill up. Now, putting it in a spread sheet? I did that for the first time a year ago. I've had the truck since new, 2007.
