Talking 50 Miles took 0.77 Gallons!

I drove home in Eco mode from Princeton, NJ to Phillipsburg, NJ - a trip of exactly 50 miles. I got 65.1 mpg for the trip. It's mostly 50 MPH winding county roads. I used ACC for most of the trip. So far, I've gone about 300 miles on this tank of gas, and it's still half full. After 300 miles in my old '99 Civic, I'd need to fill it. I continue to be amazed.

I've been through two full tanks so far and have exceeded 60mpg average for both.

466.0 miles in 7.54 gallons = 61.77mpg
403.1 miles in 6.66 gallons = 60.49mpg

BTW, in-car indicated mpg has been LESS than actual mpg!

436.2 miles in 7.474 gallons = 58.36mpg actual (57.4 indicated)

I'm a little bummed. This is my first tank to get less than 60mpg! Short trips kill mpg.

Forgot to post this little gem of a commute to work the other day. If you put your mind to it, beating EPA values is not that difficult.
