I drove to my sons Graduation from St Paul to Pheonix last week and returned yesterday... The car ran GREAT at 80-90 mph consistantly and averaged 25-30mpg... The car gets much better gas milage at high altitudes!! (31):thumbsup:
Going through the passes in the mountains was a blast ! We were passing alot of cars and at one gas station one dumbshit Toyota driver said that I should slow down to save gas. !!!HAHAHA....I asked him what kind of milage he was getting and he Replied "better than you"" So what's that supposed to mean?? "I'm getting 29-30 at a little under the speed limit" At that point I had to laugh so loud my wife asked what was so funny. I said the Toyota was getting the same milage we were.. She said thats nice but I'd rather drive in a Classy Benz!!!
We ate at a Chille's and then went back on the freeway and blew right by the idiot !!!
Never saw him again !!!:eek:
