Bet you can still hear the motor running…. That’s a strange thing that happens to me after I’ve been on the road for a while.

198.6 Gallons of gas and 7,198 miles. 36 mpg average, I know individual tanks varied from 31 to 40 Depending mostly on the wind direction and speed. The mileage is from the gps, Moving time was 111 hours with an average moving speed of 65 mph. Visited 18 States including the 4 I was missing. Highest gas price I remember was 4.15 (California) and lowest was 2.28 (Texas)

Oh and the WORST Traffic was within 15 miles of my house at the Damn Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel!!
