Well, the suspense was killing me and I just couldn't take it any longer.
With just a smidgen under 1/4 tank showing on the fuel guage
this morning and 752kms showing on the odometer, I finally fueled up.  I've
lost track how long I've even been driving on this tank of fuel.  With the
Pathfinder it's easy to remember (usually 4 days or so)
41.78L, $40.50 ($0.969/L) making it about 50.78MPG (imperial)
In truth it would be a little less....probably around 48-49MPG as I added a
couple<?> liters of gasoline back a couple weeks ago when it was
around -25*C or so in fear of fuel gelling.
Driving was about 75% hwy / 25% city.  Temps the past week have been just
below freezing, but the week before -25*c-->-10*c
Up until a few days ago I was running on 3 GP's

I'm very happy.  Heck, I would've been happy with 45MPG......

Not bad for a car with 405k kms on it, eh? woo-hooo!

I love it !

Wish I had 2 more of them.
