I think it may have been the strong tailwind I had going home Friday coupled with no wind coming back on Monday, but I managed a whopping 28.6 miles per gallon on the last tank of gas. In the old ’02 MCS this would be nothing to write home about but in the convertible I rarely see more than 26 for my Brawley to San Diego commute.
Interestingly though, I put 13.1 gallons in this morning and the OBC said I had 19 miles left to go which would be less than a gallon left in the tank. Too bad I didn’t make the 400 miles, am yet to manage that on any journey.
Gas this morning was $3.56 and rising. Ouch.
