The journey begins!

After a 1600 hundred mile trek across 6 states, from 10% humidity to 90% humidity $600 worth of diesel and 6 quarts of oil, transformation begins!

that sounds very good - how many gallons of fuel did you use, or how much per gal did your fuel cost?

Varied from $3.00 plus in Nevada to $2.50 in Texas. I pushed hard till I got to Texas, and got only 5 miles to gallon, slowed her down to 65 in Texas and almost doubled my mileage. 65 mph is very comfortable and way more fuel efficient.
