hows this for focus appreciation? 50 mile highway trip traveling 55-65 mph, including stopping on the shoulder then shooting back on the freeway equaled this:



Truth be told I was driving behind a Dodge Ram diesel towing a 20 ton trailer (the entire time). FYI, the Ram averaged 7 mpg during that trip while I averaged 47 in it's draft. Also, I did average 36 mpg on a (1000 mile) highway trip under normal higher speed driving conditions, with the AC on (non-drafting), which is still pretty good though.
