World record MPG?
 
There's a bit of a story behind this pic, but I'm curious if anyone can beat it? [woot]

It appears to have been taken right after resetting the average mpg meter while coasting down hill before hand, since there is no way on earth the car is getting 95.1 MPG as shown except under ADFSO when its burning zero fuel and getting infinite mpg/ distance.

So, reset while driving down the rocky mountain trail or something. :)

That's cheating!

Took a nice long, leisurely drive last week from my home in Fort Worth, TX to Los Angeles, CA. [hihi]

After a lunch stop in Barstow, CA (we took I-40 instead of I-10) we headed south on I-15. When you pass through the Angeles National Forest just north of San Bernadino, there's a spot of highway where it drops from 5000ft to around 700-800ft in the span of about 5 miles. So I hit reset on the MPG counter and basically coasted down the hill. Started at around 65mph and even with a few brake checks we were doing 85mph by the bottom. This pic was taken just as the road flattened out. I really wanted to see what happened when it hit 100mpg, but no such luck. [neener]

If I had put it in neutral instead of leaving it in gear it may have gone higher. But the world may never know. No hills even approaching that here in Texas. [giggle]
