Below is the latest results I could find on the marathon. These results were posted at 9:05 am today.

And the 1.4 liter per 100 kilometers running total.
1.4L = 168.0mpg. 875 kilometers = 543.5 miles.
They have to use metrics to know what they are getting since the Insight tops out at 150 mpg.

I-35 or US-71

That's a good question. I live on the SE side of KC, so when I drive to Tulsa, I take US-71 down to Joplin, then I-44. To the Ponca City area, then it would be US-60 over through Bartlesville to Ponca.

I visit Bartlesville, OK once a month for work and I use my GPS for the best route. It takes me a different way every time. I punched up Mapquest and it took me down I-35, so I have to backtrack a little up in KC.

The short answer is probably I-35. Will you be going?

It mentioned a couple of times in the thread that they would be somewhere around 25 mph.

Yeah, I saw the guestimates. I was hoping they had timed some of the laps so we could compare the measured average speed to the measured mpg.

Hey guys,
If you look at the first post in the thread it gives the time spent driving for each lap. The average speeds have been between 17 and 23 mph, I think they are using P&G between 15 and 45 mph. Note that the thread I hyperlinked is different from the one at the top of this thread.

So is that a P&G between 5th and 4th or what?
