Data Day: Gassing Up My Car

Here are some mildly interesting statistics about gasoline, drawn from the 90 times I've filled up my gas tank since I purchased my car in May 2012.

The average gas mileage for my 2012 Honda Accord is 21.71 MPG. The worst was 15.87 (during the winter) and the best was 30.1 (on a trip to Blacksburg for the MV Practice Field opening). Honda advertises 20 city / 30 highway for this model so I'm normal.

The price of gas has ranged from $1.80/gallon to $3.87/gallon with the average at $3.11.

I generally go 285 miles or 16 days between fill-ups. Once, I made it 39 whole days without filling up, but that's because we were in Canada and then we drove Rebecca's car to the beach for another week with the Smiths.

The most I've ever spent on gas in a single fill-up was $65.40. The most gas I've ever purchased at once was 17.0 gallons.

Data is fun!
