I haven’t bought fuel in 5 weeks

If you looked at the trip odometer on my car (a 1982 VW Rabbit that runs on vegetable oil), you’d think I’ve only traveled 26 miles. But this is not true. My trip odometer rolls back to 0 after 999.9 miles. With that in mind you might guess that I’ve traveled 1026 miles on a single tank of diesel. This is also, not true.

My trip odometer just rolled over for the second time, meaning I’ve traveled 2026 miles on less than one tank of diesel (I reset my trip to 0 when I fill up). The kicker is I still have about 1/3 of tank of fuel left. The last time I stopped at a gas station was on June 16th.
