09/16/2010 268 8.9 0Last leg of the trip is straight, boring interstate, 55-60 mph, a/c. Note - BETTER mileage in the mountains than on the highway. Using the lower gears while going around sharp curves or uphill, then coasting downhill, at 10-50 mph, mostly no a/c, is more efficient than a constant 55 mph in top gear. The loss of economy from time spent in low gears was less important than the elimination of aerodynamic drag from lower average speed, in my estimation. Also, I see no visible change in fuel economy due to the tonneau cover when < 60 mph. It is more likely that visible differences show up 80+ mph, but the truck is too small/old/noisy/threatening to burn oil, and I am too cheap to find out.30.11

09/08/2010 352 10.1 0Mountain driving begins here, mostly Blue Ridge Hwy. I confirmed with the Scanguage that I have fuel cutoff when coasting down a mountain in 5th gear at highway speeds. I also did lots of coasting or just switched the motor off for several minutes at a time. The truck is light enough to be ok without power assist with steering and brakes.34.85

09/07/2010 367 11.7 0First leg of Dallas-Maine roadtrip, mostly I30, 55-60mph, lots of a/c, new homemade tonneau cover.31.36
11/28/2009 467 13.3 0Lamy NM to Dallas TX, stout tail wind, descending 6500 feet in elevation, 55-60 mph. Pretty much I 'cheated' in every legit way to get this number - no a/c, no rain, nearly constant interstate speed, very light traffic, no 10% ethanol in rural gas. Harleys and crotch rockets driven in a spirited manner burn more gas than my 35 mpg (!)35.11
11/25/2009 369 13.6 0Dallas, TX to Lamy, NM, 55-60 mph, with a stout headwind and climbing 6500 feet in elevation.27.13
12/04/2007 278 10.3 0These last two legs of the trip were more hurried, ~70 mph on a straight, flat interstate, no a/c.26.99

11/30/2007 326 11 0beginning of trip "to the liquor store" - Dallas to Bourbon County, Kentucky, by way of Memphis, and then taking the long way home up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Speed was ~60 mph, no a/c. Cool air and rural gasoline without the 10% ethanol seems to help slightly. A tall camper shell was on the truck - very practical, comfortable for sleeping and being able to sit up straight, not so much with the aerodynamics.29.63
