MPG For 2006 Scion Xb - The Green Machine

MPG For 2006 Scion Xb - The Green Machine

Let's talk about gas mileage for one brief moment...

The last time we filled up the Green Machine was on July 1 in Joplin, Missouri. We filled up again during our trip to Glacier National Park on Thursday July 12 just east of Missoula. We put NO gas in the car in between July 1 in Missouri and July 12 in Montana.

For those of you that are geologically challenged, Missouri and Montana are no where near each other even though they both begin with the letter M.

We put 6.6 gallons of gasoline on Thursday, July 12.

From July 1 to July 12 the Green Machine travelled 1812 miles.

6.6 gallons and 1812 miles figures out to be 274 miles per gallon! Isn't that awesome? That must be some kind of record, right?

Now, Please do not ask about the MPG for the BoggsMobile pulling the heavy trailer out here over the mountains. Believe me THAT is depressing.

I can assure you that even if the Green Machine was getting 274 miles per gallon the bus would More than make up for it in the OTHER direction!

Have a great day!
