NOTE: This FAQ pertains to the 1st & 2nd generation Automatic adapters only.

There are many factors that affect MPG, and we only track three of them: speeding, braking, and accelerating.

There are many other more major factors including tire pressure, weight of your car, etc, but the three we track are ones that you can directly control while you are driving. Therefore, your MPG might be great because you are doing everything right in terms of the other factors, but your score could still be low if you are engaging in the three behaviors we track. We do know that your MPG will be higher if you don't engage in speeding, hard brakes, or hard accelerations, but the difference may not be noticeable.

For more details on how drive scores are calculated, please see this FAQ.
