Holy Hell! Why? I just fill her up and go! I guess I watched it more when it was approching 100k...but mileage doesn't bother me too much. I don't care about MPG either. If she needs to be fed, I feed her. 3gears IMO that's just the price to pay for "happy motoring". burnout

i keep an eye on mpg b/c it tells alot about how the engine is running. if i take a long trip and only get 26mpg then i know i either passed too much or maybe i need a new fuel filter,plugs, intake cleaning, etc.

It's basically a maintenance log of the conditions during the fuel run and any maint. done as well. It's neat to look back and see how different circumstances affected the car.

I've put on about 4k in the 6 months I've had my 98. It's my daily work car, and weekend cruiser, until summer anyway. Then my 68 GS350 comes out to play. smile I'm planning some fun stuff with the 68, looking at buying headers and 2.5" mandrel exhaust system.

Got my '95 in 1999 with just over 26,000 miles on it now has 53,000.
Got my '99 in 2005 with 59,422 miles on it and it is at 64,000.
I also keep track of fill ups, for maintenance tracking and to make sure everything is as it should be.
