True, but all I'm looking for is the long term trend. Shouldn't matter if they're city or highway drivers. City drivers' mileage will vary more widely on a given tank but over 40 tanks or more the short term variance will disappear and we'll see over the long term if their mileage is trending up, down or steady.
