That's just me, though. I stay away from NYC at all costs when driving.

Looks like you'll have gorgeous weather for the most part, though. Enjoy the trip!
OMG never go thru manhattan or the bronx... take the nj turpike thru the oranges then join up w/ 287 connect w/ I95

TiPilot Have a safe trip!

Also, might be a good chance for a long-run test of premium vs. regular.

My Ti seems to prefer 93 octane for all-highway runs. I've got as high as 45.0 over nearly 500 miles cruising at 65 MPH. Doesn't seem to help when it's mixed city/hwy but I have seen a difference with premium on all-highway.

Most of the major stuff is close to the shorelines. You'll be fine.
Thanks Guys! It is gonna be a Wicked Long Trip. Plus, I have my wife and two small dogs. I won't be going through Delaware. I am gonna take I-78 to stay North of Philly. I will be going through I-95 through New Jersey, New York and Connecticut then onto CT-15. I will be hitting the road in about 2 hours so I can go sign out on leave then I will be on my way to Maine.

I will post my fuel mileage from each fuel up from Fuelly on here when I get to a stopping point.

Anything crazy going on along the east coast from Hurricane Sandy that I might run into on my way to Maine?
