Today, I drove from Lafayette, IN to Zanesville, OH. Distance traveled was 289.6 miles. My MPG was an astounding 27.8. I filled up with Mobil regular (87 octane) in Lafayette, IN at 9 a.m. EST. I refueled near Zanesville, OH at 3:46 p.m. EST and took 10.4 gallons of gas. Stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel and one rest area stop. Outside temp was 86 degrees at the hottest part of the day. No noticeable wind. Flat highway. Cold tire pressure was 42 psi. I drove at 2000 rpm nearly the whole distance (70 mph) on cruise control. The wife drove about 1 hour and doesn't like cruise, but she is a steady driver. The Ody is an 09 and has 19,000 miles on it. I just have to thump myself on the chest.
