Yeah, given using the trip computer or pump receipts and odometer I'd imagine the later is the most accurate. One thing I do like about the trip computer is that it does not count the fuel used for remote starting. IMO that's the way it should be because remote starting is discretionary and has 0% correlation with the vehicle's capabilities so it shouldn't count against the mpg.

As easy as it is to use GPS to check Odometer, I don't know why everyone hasn't check it. :shift:  I found out there is a real noticeable difference between New and worn Tires. :)

Based on your signature you noticed a difference of 2.2% on at least one occasion. Do you have any other observations? Is it usually around 2%? How big of an effect does does tire wear have?

When they are brand new it's about 2% and when worn out about 1.6%.  Right now it's 1.8%, I wonder if not all tires are the same size. :)
