So we started off this morning from central Maryland and got all the way to Peoria IL before deciding to call it quits for the day. The first two hours were a little rough on the old girl with the combination of having a substantial amount of gasoline of questionable age/quality still in the tank and climbing quite a few big hills in northern Maryland and Pennsylvania. But after the first few hours, she really seemed to work out all the kinks and found a sweet spot running around 65-70 down the highway. Being a nerd, here’s some stats extrapolated from our gas receipts and the map above.
- Leg 1: Maryland to Breezewood PA (123 miles, 8.157 Gallons, 15.08 MPG)
- Leg 2: Breezewood to Cambridge OH (209 Miles, 10.251 Gallons, 20.39 MPG)
- Leg 3: Cambridge to Brownsville IN (274 Miles, 15.8 Gallons, 17.34 MPG)
- Leg 4: Brownsville to Peoria IL (194 Miles, 10.1 Gallons, 19.21 MPG)
Not bad for a 25 year old, carbeurated V-8!
