___Your are truly knocking on the door of the magic 100 mpg mark! A nice tail wind and you will be taking pics of the dash and all that crazy stuff Congrats on nailing down the (2) 90 + mile segments. With 2 bars left, I have traveled over 173 miles if that helps gauge your possible maximum in case you were shooting for a particular target range. With the low fuel light just lit, you should have ~ 100 miles left but leave a little margin in case you aren’t receiving the fuel economy you would have liked over that last 100 miles and you run her dry out on a lonely desolate road just 3 miles from the next gas station
I still do not own a digital camera, so last week when I reach 90mpg I had my family come out to the car and verify my claim.
I figure if I’m really getting 77 mpg, I should be able to reach 770 miles. I’d love to reach 780 or 790. I’m guessing I will not be able to reach 800. But, man it’s temptingly close!
There are no gas stations along the first/last 12 miles of my daily commute, so depending on where I end up, running out of gas could be a real problem.
I could put a container of gasoline in the trunk “just in case”, but the temps here are in the 80’s. It seems like a bad idea.
I can just see the headline now…
