Interesting that the removal of the newmission also allowed a second driver's mpg's to rise again.

Maybe the car just keeps resetting after a certain point, I don't know, but I do know that the car goes from feeling like a well-worn shoe on me and doing whatever I want to being persnickety and not responding in its usual manner, to all of a sudden being the car I love again.

ymmv.
Sorry, my memory fails me something fierce...

I'm already seeing 1.5 mpg with the removal of the Newmission by the trip computer. I'm finally back over 30 mpg, so we'll see what the whole tank yields...
