    My First Road Trip(gas mileage)

    Had to get away from Charleston so I drove up to Hendersonville, NC Saturday. Nothing like some mountain air to recharge the batteries.

    I have to say that this is the most comfortable road car I have ever owned.
    My legs didn't hurt after the 3.5 hrs.

    There is no sensation of speed when you are this high up. 80 mph felt like 70 mph in a sedan.

    My only negative of the trip was the gas mileage.
    A little over 20 mpg at 80 mph.

    On the way back we did 236 miles in 3:10. over 76 mph average. Not bad.
    Gas mileage was about 20.4 mpg.

    My Impala would pull about 29 mpg at this speed.

    I discovered that the difference between 75 mph and 80 mph is 2mpg!

    Secondly my computer is off. The computer says I went 258.9 miles between fill ups, my odometer says 263 miles.
    The computer is off on gas mileage also. Over 1 mpg.

    I am going to have to get used to the gas mileage and the $30.00 fillups.

    The car and the shiftronic was an absolute blast in the mountains.
