First fill of the gas tank

I milked that first tank for all it was worth, partially because the vehicle cost so darn much and partially because the dealership provided the Hybrid with a full tank of gas upon delivery.
End result for the first tank was:
30.6 miles per gallon
397 miles driven

Actually, I didn't run the tank dry or even close to it. No indicators came on to warn me that I was down to a gallon or so. The Highlander has a 17 gallon gas tank and it only took 14 gallons at the pump, so I probably could have got another 50 to 75 miles on it before refueling.

I'll be keeping a running spreadsheet link of our fuel efficiency in the sidebar so you can tune in and check it out at any time.
