Results:
In my first post after the first 500 miles I averaged only 30.3 miles per gallon.

At this point I'm averaging 49-54 mpg pretty consistently and calculated with a calculator not the OBC. No issues with the OBC mileage readings though but after running out of gas the first week I give it plenty of respect/cushion, have the fuel range set on my GPS as a reminder and now carry two MSR fuel bottles in DV and off-road.

I'm switching to TKC 80's next week so it will be interesting to see the difference for my around town stuff.
