On the way home from work my baby reached a mile stone, or should I say 100,000 mile stone? So I had to take a picture. <p>

29.7 mpg, my goodness. I can barely get that going downhill from the mountains. Congrats, a great milestone. My recent milestone was 10K last month!

Re: (-Pascal)

Congrats! Great avg as well... I just hit 85000 miles; it's kind of sad because somehow I feel the days are numbered.

I think that your MPG is more of a mile stone than the miles you've gone <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

The average MPG is great I get lucky with a my commute that has me at consistent speeds for a long time.

Re: A Mile Stone so I had to (CM2RAS)

My MPG improved greatly when I went to 93 octane. I was hitting 29 MPG easily from Reading to Philly Airport (and this is at "spirited progress" on the Turnpike). Before, it was ~26 MPG tops with 91. Anyhoo, congrats on the 100K!!!!
