Wednesday I have to drive to cape breton (500km one way give or take) (310miles or so) hopefully I will see better mileage on that trip. I'm hoping for 20+ but I usually get 16-19 mixed traffic highway rural roads and offroad.

Usually keeping it on 4xHigh through city this winter, really didnt screw around too much minus spinning some cookies with a bunch of friends at the local high school parking lot.. I was usually getting around 140 miles on 3/4ths of a tank.. so that is roughly 15 gallons at 80 miles which equals about 9.3333333 miles per gallon.

Yeah, winter gas + 4High really sucks... lol
