So, me and my family took a trip down to DC for the weekend. Filled car up with gas the day before and filled the tires with 37 pounds of air (both front and back). Door to door, each way, was two hundred and thirty miles (with some driving while I was there) . Of course there was traffic and we were driving with 3 people and a bunch of bags and figure it took about 5 and a half hours to dc and about 5 hours back.

About 40 minutes down was bumper to bumper stop and go with slower traffic for the remaining hour or so and coming home was similar..

With all that and the ac blowing the whole time the rig went 500 miles (with approximately 60 miles to empty), bf I decided to put some more gas in her.. Additionally, the low fuel light didn't even come on bf I stopped for gas.

Honestly, I knew she was good on gas, but since this was my first "long haul" I had no idea how good she really was.. So, I just wanted to give a heads up on how good the v6 was (with the 5 speed) for long trips... Over 500 miles on a tank.... Damn impressive IMHO.

Pics of the hud to prove it... Trip A was the the mileage from fill up and trip B was just the trip with a pic of the DTE as I filled her up. And one last pic to let me know I was back in the tri-state!

Pink wheels..... Boom, NJ stand up!
