Yesterday I filled the wagon in Ludlow VT, then drove home, 153miles. The first 23 miles are state roads with a speed limit of 50mph except for the town of Chester VT. From the exit in CT to the house is about 5 miles.

On the highway the cruise was set at 75-78mph most of the way. I kept checking the dash readout, Yes I know it's optimistic by about one mpg.

It read 27.0 mpg when we got home. I didn't think the car would get that mileage with the hp it makes going that fast.

Pretty happy with that.
