Wow...Awesome...How long have your trips been/distances? Also, terrain conditions and traffic conditions?

Thanks.

mostly i drive in segments of about 45 minutes. i have a 40 mile trip to work, which most of the week i drove on the rural 4 lane i usually take, driving about 60. after work, i go to the barn and ride my horse, and then take the backroads home.......rolling hills, not a lot of traffic and i generally drive about 45. it's a nice road because i can cost a lot, a couple of sections will let me go for over a mile in neutral. there has been wind, but some days it's been with me, others against.

Yeah...45 mph is awesome for the HCH. My dad has a HCH 1, which I drove quite a bit so I know about it some. I have an '07 HCH, so that's what I'm most used to.

Didn't you say that you needed inspiration?

Congrats.

A 70 mpg tank?
