Well...
I'm gonna estimate with my E46 M3...

Average MPG is 16-18 (assuming going 65mph+ on freeway)
Total distance to LA from my place (Alamo) is about 425 miles (following the caravan route)
Total gallon of gas used will be around 27 gallons (worst case)
Assuming the gas price is $4.50 (local gas price)
You looking around ~$122 (one way)

Its a roughly a 700 mile round trip, so just divide by your average highway mpgs and then multiply by the curent cost of gas Getting 25mpgs its $123 for me... at my local gas prices that is

I rounded up for my math and mileage.

1100 miles

23 Mpg

4.40 average price for midgrade throughout the state.

I should be around 250 from Sacramento and back

We aren't staying in Santa Maria, we're stopping at in and out for lunch. I dont have the itinerary with me but off the top of my head I think it should be around 11:30. I'll update you later with the exact time

Hello people.

A friend and I are coming out to bimmerfest this year, but im leaving from Santa Barbara, CA, which is about a 100 miles north of Pasadena.
Would love to meet up with you guys on the way. Would love it if someone could call me when you guys are a couple miles out so we can jump in line with you.
Johny will be driving his 335i on M6 wheels.


How many cars are usually in this caravan?
