On the highway I almost always run over 24 MPG, but i keep it at or under 70 on cruise control, usually between 65 and 68. Once in a while I am a little more of a hurry on long trips, 70 to 75 and still always over 22 MPG. Tires are always fully inflated not lowered for a smoother ride like some people do.
I do not manually check anymore, I use to all the time and it was always less then 1.5 MPG off, and sometimes lower sometimes higher. I mostly always fill up at the same station using the same pump. When you do not have many stations selling diesel near you, that is what you do. I also fill up the same way, fill till it clicks, wait a second then go till it clicks again. I figure the meter might be more accurate then hand calculating. Different pumps shut off at different points so how much you pump in is not 100% accurate to how much you used between tanks.
