22 MPG

I got 22 mpg from this past Saturday to Wednesday (yesterday) driving to our place in Clifton and to Waco. The hard part about getting this mileage was driving 55 mph or below 1500 rpm. I figured this with the old hand held calculator. I didn't check the air pressure in my tires (never got around to it) so I don't know how that impacted my mileage. If my tires are low I imagine I could squeeze out a tiny bit more mileage by putting them where they belong or slightly higher.
Anyways, thought I would share, also, I am now at 335,000 miles!

Hey John, I've felt like that before.

I wish it wasn't so hard to drive that slow. I like driving about 70 - 75 mph, but I like stretching time between fill-ups.

55 MPH Sucks.

I can sqeeze out 17-18 mpg going below 70 for the whole tank but not 20+! Good to hear!
