Thumbs up First Tank: 32.5 MPG's -- Not Bad!

I'm happy to report that with my first full tank of gas the RAV4 reached 32.5 mpg's real-world! I drove 390 miles and filled it up with 12 gallons exactly, which means I had a hefty reserve of ~3 gallons remaining on "empty!" So I could drive another 30 miles and still have a good amount of fuel left in the tank. I filled it up immediately after the warning light appeared. [I realize it's not good to let the tank run close to dry.]

I'm coming from a Prius so I was glad that I could get such good mileage from it with 18" rims and crossbars.

Hopefully this isn't just a fluke ...
