I found a good website that helps figure out miles per gallon. At the bottom of the page is a calculator grid where you input your starting mileage, ending mileage, and gallons used and it figures the MPG.
I'm not sure that is correct (but I sure hope it is!), my last trip to Vacaville round trip from San Diego was 8.3 mpg. I was disappointed with that number, I had hoped for around 10. But I was going 60 to 65 mph on that trip, so this trip should be better. I'm not sure it's 5+ miles per gallon better, though. When I leave here, I'll fill up again and next time I get gas, after driving on a tank at 55 mph, I'll figure it again and see if the 13.65 is correct. Between gas prices coming down and going 55 mph and having my mpg going up, my monthly budget will be happy.
We took it easy today, I took a nap when the kids went down, Kristy and Matt rested, too. Then tonight we went to Deanna and Eric's house for the monthly dinner.
They did ribs, mashed potatoes, corn and baby carrots, and garlic bread. It was really good, the first time I've had ribs. Yes, it was the first time I've had ribs. They were good, but really messy.
Here's the kid's table - so cute:
The kids had fun running round on the lawn after dinner:
until we had root beer floats:
