Cool Holiday Trip

Took a 628 mi round trip from central Kansas to Texas panhandle. Used 13 gallons 89 octane reg unleaded, cruise set at 62, two adults and luggage for 4 days and A/C on entire trip. 48 mpg. I am loving it.

Wow, THOSE are some impressive numbers -- all of them!

628 miles on a single tank!
13 gallons on a 12.6 gal. tank (I know, I know...it really can hold 15.6 gallons)!
48 MPG = 628 miles / 13 gals.
62 mph 'cruise control' speed.
TWO passengers plus luggage.
A/C on all the time.

I'm betting it's due mostly to (a) constant use of 'cruise control' to (b) maintain that constant 62 mph speed.

What air pressure are you keeping in the tires, 35 psi?
