Ultimate road trip machine

Well, completed a week long trip up and all over northern Michigan and back home to Tennessee. Right around 2200 trouble free miles. The car inhales freeway miles. 27 mpg in the rolling terrain in TN and KY at 75 to 80 mph, Ohio and above saw better mileage varying anywhere from 28 to an amazing 31 mpg day with lots of flat highway driving at 55 to 60. Was amazing to see the range at 550 miles most fill ups.

Now back to the daily grind. 17 mpg....if I behave.

Love my Ultimate Driving Machine!

I agree with you. These are just amazing highway, travel cruisers. And I can get up as high as 34MPG when going 45-60 with a light foot. It's crazy.

And highway commuting was one of the reasons I got the car, so I am happy it meets those expectations.
