I drove super conservatively for 1/2 a tank to see what would happen and got 15.5mpgs.... fail. I'd rather run 13-14mpgs and not drive like a senior citizen.

Haha that's because I wasn't going down a hill I was cruising a straight flat road at about 50 mph (speed limit is 40 but I'm a rebel).

Also, I hope you realize I'm joking. While I did get that mpg number the whole time I maintained that speed, that's way to slow to be driving

Of course, I knew you were cheating in some way, just not which one.

Well, actually I did, the revs are pretty low for highway speeds.

Fill it up completely before you start the test, and fill it up at the completion of the 30 days. The longer the testing period, the more accurate the results will be.
During the 30 day test, do I put the jeep in neutral when I have to push it after its out of gas? My Jeep will not last 30 days on one tank.

64 divided by 100 equals 6.4......So 4 divided by 6.4 equals .625 or .625 percent error?
Multiply your speedometer or odometer by 1.0667 to get your real mph/ mileage.
