We filled up before we left and by the time we got to Dayton it was at 3/4 tank. Since the tank is listed as 17.5 gal, 1/4 tank is 4.375 gallons. 188/4.375 is 42.971 mpg.[/quote]

Using that method to calculate mileage isn't even close to accurate. You'll NEVER truly see 40+ MPG from the V6 over the course of a 188 mile trip.

The only way to do it is at the pump, miles/gallons. Not "this is where the needle was when I last looked". Besides, it's in the V shape anyway, the top half goes longer than the bottom half -- ever notice?
