I reset my average mileage everytime I fill up; if you don't, it'll take into account the previous data so you won't know what your actual mileage is for the new tank of gas - you can see the difference by not resetting trip 2's avg mileage and resetting trip 1's avg mileage.

As for my mileage, I've been getting 33-34 MPG with about 80-90% freeway driving. I'm pretty happy with that considering I have a fully-loaded titanium and drive at about 75 MPH with the A/C on most of the time (87 octane Chevron). I just passed 10k miles, but when I first got the car and was doing about 70% freeway driving, I only got 27 MPG. Some of that was driving the car more aggressively, but the mileage has definately improved over time.
Thanks, Will reset this AM.
