It has been a long long time since I had a math class.
I took a 3 hour road trip this evening, filled with fuel before I left, zeroed the trip meter, and refilled when I got back.
miles traveled: 235
fuel used: 6.533 gallons
The way I figured it, I got 35.97 miles per gallon. Can this be right? I have never observed better than 25 mpg in this Bonneville before.
All the conditions were great, temperature in the upper 60s F, tires properly inflated, windows rolled up, no AC, just me and another lightweight person, a minimum of crap in the trunk, and I used cruise control almost the whole way. About 30 or 40 miles were in town, so I'm calling this a solid 36 miles per gallon on the highway.
Oh, and if anyone is interested, low grade gas (87 octane) is $3.099 here.
