I actually went down to 28mpg, but I have been diesel clouding lots of people (that's my road rage haha). So that could be why. I am driving nice and easy now so we'll see what she does. I dumped a bunch of Diesel Kleen in this time too to boost the cetane.

I always have my oil/filter changed by a mechanic. I usually ask him for adjustments if engine idles rough or has little power. It ALWAYS helps and he does it as part of the maintenance. Believe me, it's worth $40 I pay.

Hmm well I'll see. If merc can do it while I wait I will do that from now on. I am tired of doing the night drop and having to go get it on my lunch hour and have someone come with me to drive the other car.

My MPG is back to normal now...!

I figured out why our mpg went up now... DUH! They went back to Diesel 2. It's got higher energy content therefore giving more power and better mileage. I thought the car felt more agile and I still have 3/4 of a tank left and have gone 160 miles already, all city, mostly lead foot style driving as well. VERY happy!
