Manually, it's not rocket science. I've kept a log on all my vehicles since I've owned them.

I do it manually at the pump if no one's waiting and always on GasBuddy for the long term trends.

Right now I get around 29 hamsters per mile. That's how many I have to resupply with food to reenergize them.

My car has all the bells and whistles but the most accurate way to figure MPG is manually and always fill up your tank the same way. You can not keep topping it off one time and the next time stop pumping when it turns off automatically.
