Set my baseline today and established my Test lap for mods and repairs.

27.8 miles.

Baseline stock with 800 miles on car
70 Degrees
dry roads.
light Sunday evening traffic (6:30pm).
36.4 MPG (car computer)
Driving like a granny without hypermiling.

The girlfriend and I in the car (>300lbs combined)

Traveling clockwise headed to HEB for 87 octane gas (10% ethanol) then into town where there are speed limits of 45 -35mph and multiple stoplights but all right turns. Hills throughout, Elevation changes, downhill to town and uphill when traveling west up the boulevard (speed limit 55 & 60). Highest elevation is the Northwest tip of the lap.
