Can they all be driving like idiots? Any thoughts?
On Fuelly, my average is 30 mpg, but my last few tanks ranged from the low to mid-20s. Nothing wrong with my car -- just a change in where I drive. My new commute is shorter but it involves lots of idling through city streets. It takes me about 30 minutes to go 4 miles. Biking would be faster, but I've been too lazy.
