This is the last week of the May Fuel Challenge! Instead of going on a road trip this weekend, we're having a staycation and having family and friends visit us.

It'll save on gas of course, but it also gives us a chance to unwind. I'm hoping to take our baby girl to the pool in a bit and get some photos of her.

 My Own Progress with the Fuel Challenge

I filled up at Costco this week and got the stats for my last tank from Fuelly.

  • Miles Driven: 273.7
  • Gallons: 10.94
  • MPG: 25.0
  • Price: $3.459/gallon
In addition, here are my mpg numbers from Fuelly for the month of May:

Nothing spectacular – I got to get my numbers up this summer.

  1. Whoa! Nice job; one month and 250 miles?

    If I were in the challenge my biggest decrease would have been from the price of gas dropping.
