well, if you want to talk short trips ... a 3 mile trip 101.3 mpg. a 1.5 mile trip maxed out the guage at 120 mpg.
Interstate ... 88 mpg from a gas station in Louisiana to another gas station in LA ... friend I was following had a tire going out, so we stopped to
get it fixed. I don't remember the exact distant, but it was nearly across the whole stretch of the I-10 and cutoff of I-10 (skipping the New
Orleans route) in that state. Usually get 60s to 70s on the interstate ... 50s to 60s in the city on a hot red light laden day, 40s.

What you said is so true, learning to drive smooth, and calm. Filling up once a month every few months isn't too bad. I got over 900 miles on a
tank before ... averaged over 70 mpg.
I feel much more peaceful since I have been driving that way. Much different than my sports/muscle car days. I wonder what I could get with them now
with the same techniques. I would need a guage, they help a LOT.
