Default My Best Mileage Ever

I had to take a trip up to North Jersey today, near NYC (after a stop in Philly). So, mostly a round-trip up and down the NJ Turnpike. MPG from today's run: 29.9! Most of the trip was at speeds of 55-65mph, and the terrain is fairly flat. Also, AC on the entire trip.

That's really good, just got back from Clarion 13, an 800 miles round trip and averaged 24.5 on the highway. That did include pulling my companion trailer with a total weight of 700 lbs.
The trip included traveling through West Virginia and a few mountains

Not bad at all with your trailer.

I was thinking the same thing. I've run back and forth across the PA turnpike with its mountains a couple of times and have gotten, at best, around 26MPG.

The average of 24.5 mpg was based on gals used to miles traveled and not the car readout. The computer only showed 22.2 mpg on the highway that's why I did it the old fashion way. Checked the first tank going up and averaged 24.4 mpg and checked first tank coming back and averaged 24.6 mpg even thought the car was reading an average of 22.4.

I didn't bother to check the mpg while cruising in Clarion, I know that would be much lower.
