Thanks for posting. I guess an extra 1000 pounds really adds up...

"We picked the black beast up in Detroit with a full tank of gas. It took 17 fill-ups -- 197.36 gallons -- to complete the 3032 miles back home. In layman's terms, that's 14 mpg at a total of $825.18. Gulp."

His figures, my math, add up to 15.4 MPG. Also, his cost comes out to $4.18 per gallon. A bit on the high side. But, at least he picked the right vehicle for his run.

He was probably drunk when he did his figuring.
