I track my gas mileage to see how various driving conditions affect my gas mileage.

On 9/15/2007 I had with the recommended 32 psi in my tires and recorded a typical range (313.4 miles) and mileage of 22.4 mpg. To see what effect more air pressure would have on my gas mileage, I increased the air pressure to 38 psi.

The range increased to a new high of 370 miles, with mileage of 24.8 mpg!

Over the course of a year, if I were to drive 20,000 miles, the increase in mileage would save me 87.6 gallons, or $259.26 at $2.959 per gallon.
