Second leg on that tank was much easier driving, fill up yielded just under 11 mpg. Sunday it's off to Bishop Ca. and 30f morning temps.
Planar heater will get a workout.

We love Bishop! Such a pretty area with mountains on either side. So much to explore! Where will you stay over there?

I get Hypermilers in prius's when I drive the DEV bus on road trips.. so then I slow down to 45 and stay there.. they even flash their lights at me(in the slow lane)... so i go minimum speed which is 40.. then they do pass.. and I speed back up LOL.

When I drove for a living, I had that happen to me in NJ. 3 am, I was headed for the GW bridge and no one on the road. I had this strange feeling that someone was too darned close. His lights finally peeked out under my DOT bar. I paused the cruise control and put both feet flat on the floor, I ended up getting down to 35 mph when he decided it was too slow.
