The gas gauge is old news, mine was replaced at the VPC in August before redelivery.

557 miles on 19 gallons. 30 MPG. WOooot!

BTW - isn't the fuel capacity more like 18.5 gallons?

Did the Writer pump the 19 gallons in Florida? The pumps here have a way to register more than the actual amount of fuel pumped.

That would be illegal.

It is illegal, of course, but there are many unscrupulous gas station owners, particularly in South Florida. They get away with miscalibrated pumps because there are too few inspectors checking on them.
