lol, I was just poking fun at you for a prize. But if you're really going to pony up a prize, my guess is 35MPG and tank mileage of 540 miles. That is my official guess and swear on my honor not to modify this post in any way, shape, or form.

There, I've quoted it. Now if you edit it we'll all know (unless I edit mine as well to match your edit.)

I forget what I voted! I think I voted 500-526. I say, 523.6 miles.

Neutral is fine as long as the engine is on to keep the transmission pump circulating fluid. You'll get better mileage in neutral whenever coasting and it keeps any fuel cut offs from slowing you down. Even brief stops at the light... my idling jumps from 1.3 LPH to 1.6 LPH just leaving it in drive when stopped.

Crud I didn't notice that. Still pretty warm out there. I think you'll do better than I voted.

I'm guessing 539 miles 34.3mpg

nighttime temps will be dropping at that time, but traffic will probly be thin and won't be a problem with coasting when possible and driving under the limit. my guess is that it's be close and you mightb have to push that second low fuel light. 540 miles

I'm guessing about 585. My mileage increases well if just a few miles under the speed limit. The faster traffic will help push you along as the pass on the left.Not using the cruise control will make up for the colder weather as long as the tire pressure hasn't dropped, but I'm sure you'd check that. Good Luck

Funny, no one predicted that you'll run out of gas. keep your eye on the prize but don't forget your AAA card.

I voted 526-550, which seems to be a safe bet. Those Pillar gauges will surely be tempting you to WOT at some point along the way! Don't listen to them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
