I'll be driving down to Houston tomorrow; we'll see how the Red Rocket does on the highway.

I went to Olympia from Tacoma, which is a 26 mile freeway trip and my average speed was 70 and I averaged 40 mpg on my HD. I bet I could get higher mpg if I was easy on the gas pedal.

Driving down to Houston I drove 75-80 most of the way, then drove around Houston on the same tank of gas. I got 29; not as good as I was hoping, but decent considering Houston traffic (nuckin futs!)

I filled up just prior to leaving and filled up again this morning. A little better: 34 mpg. I was hoping to get better than my previous best of 35, but we ran into some heavy traffic on I45 in Houston after filling up- stop and go for a bout a half hour.

Any length of stop-n-go kills the mileage average. If we could just get them to build better flowing roads our fuel consumption as a whole would go down drastically.

the roads we consider congested *were* better flowing when they were made. sad fact is, the number of cars on the roads has increased *dramatically* in the last 40 years, whereas new road construction has been minimal (except maybe in california). when the federal highway system was in place, mostly by the late 70s, things were a lot better. now you can expect traffic jams anywhere and anytime.

Which is what I just said. . . the government is about 40 years behind on keeping up with the roads.

I average about 26 mpg but, the last time I calculated it I got 28.5 mpg and went about 350 miles on a tank. That's just about as good as when I drive the 1500 miles to go home.

Like our "Big Dig" relieved congestion on 93 South, right? I laugh every morning when I hear about the backup. 3 lanes to 2 lanes to 4 lanes = Still a problem!

Trip down to San Antonio definately gave me 30+ mpg. I monkeyed with the computer too much on the way there so I don't have a good number to say. The trip back averaged 36mpg from fillup all the way home.

I haven't calculated mpg from the fillup amounts, as I did not fill up when I got back. It was down to 31 mpg by the time I did fill up after a few days.

I was getting high 37s the first 60 or so miles in/leaving San Antonio. Dipping under 36 on most of the hilly highway. And then creeping back up into the low 36s in Houston.

I'm happy. I just got 29 mpg. That's the best I have had in almost a year. It has been down around 25-26 mpg but, I just tried to drive easier and it saved me a lot of gas.

Last fill-up netted 21.14MPG, and the lifetime car average so far is 21.93.

For all the city driving I do (pretty much all trips are under 10 miles, most under 5 miles in fact), I can't say I'm displeased. Sticker on city is 22.. and I'm by far the poster-child for city driving.
