There are 17.1 gallons of fuel capacity in a 1998 Honda Accord. On average, I use slightly more than half between each refueling stop, where I fill the tank. The most I've gone is about 12.5 gallons. The most miles I've gotten is, strangely, 354 on 10.009 gallons, giving the most efficient performance of this engine yet at more than 35 MPG. That's so wildly efficient that I think I wrote down a number wrong somewhere (edit: oh, right, that was the expensive NY stop where I simply stopped refueling because of the cost; never mind, that's the one time I didn't do a total refill, stopping short by two or three gallons). The average MPG per fueling stop is 28.643; without the outlier, the max is 30.901.
The most expensive gas was in Canada, weighing in at $4.721 per gallon; next door in upstate New York was $4.239, the most expensive so far. The cheapest has been in southwest Ohio and Iowa, both at $3.599, though I believe Minnesota is comparable. The east coast never went below $3.80, and areas within a hundred miles of Chicago didn't either.
At the last fueling stop I made in Wisconsin, I'd traveled 5133 miles and used about 178 gallons to do so, making the overall MPG just shy of 29.
