Holy Jeez, how did I manage this?

I set out this morning with a goal. I knew it was absurd, and I knew it was going to be tough, but I also knew that if any car could do it, it was this one.

I decided that I was going to get 70mpg during my morning commute (Orange county. about 6 miles to the freeway, and about 2 miles from the freeway to my office, and not exactly flat land or low traffic). I also decided that my average for the day would be over 60mpg. I know this might sound like crummy mileage, but I have a CVT.

Here's some photos I took with my PDA.

Home to office to home (keeping in mind that I'm in 5pm south orange county traffic (stop and go) and it's 95 degrees) : http://www.thebluepen.com/photos/insigh ... C00082.JPG

I hit 11 stoplights on my way home, which sucks, and 3 on my way to the office thanks to it being early in the morning. I wish I had a way to get home with less city driving, as we all know that starting from a light kills mileage like nothing else.

Needless to say this is a personal best. I always giggle when I fill up, I just wish I had a 5speed now.
