I hope I'm not about to jinx myself, but I'm about 100 miles into a tank @ 57.7 MPG and rising.

Good for you, Brick! You're wrong that nobody cares, you know- if people keep setting personal bests, hybrid or not, that's great!

Crossing my fingers for you, Sledge. I'm almost 500 miles into my best tank ever, so I doubt there's much chance of a jinx at this point. I'm at 53.7mpg!! Previous personal best- 49.9 mpg. That's QUITE a jump just because the weather around here cracked 70 for a couple of weeks. It's such a good feeling, though... and I'm hoping for great/similar/maybe better numbers this summer.
