Re: For you newbes's
but I've gotten to the point of trying to beat my previous best mileage. It has nothing to do with money, just a personal competition with myself.
That's about where I'm at, but I'm always trying to beat my average. It's weird, but if we just drive it, my TCH seems to get 38.6 mpg in just about every route we take. My wife went to Ohio again this week without me. It's a trip I got 40 on last time but she got 38.3 (the indicator showed 38.6). As long as I let her drive it I'm guessing the big 39 will ellude me. However when I first started driving my goal was to average 38 if possible. I didn't consider it logical or realistic to strive for 39 but it's certainly possible for the routes I normally drive. Only on my vacation to nags head did I drive a road through the mountains that I just can not get better than 36 for about 50 to 100 miles. I don't make that trip as a norm so I'm pretty confident that no matter where I go if I want I can exceed 38.
