The VX will be sitting in the garage for the next week or so while I take the family to the beach in the Prius. I consistently get 49-51 MPG at 70-75MPH cruising speeds. Recently I swapped my worn out Integrity OEM's with Kumho A/S 795's. I am running 40 PSI on a 35 PSI max sidewall. It would be interesting to see if there is a difference in FE due to this change. It's not A-B-A but at the very least I would like to see no reduction in FE.
Well the trip to the beach was 49.5MPG so it looks like the Kumhos rate well with the OEM Integrity's. That is great news since the Kumho's outscore the Integrety's in every category at Tirerack.
We decided to cut our time at the beach by a day and peruse some potential houses in Clayton, NC. We will leave tomorrow morning at 7AM, pass my new workplace at 9ish and arrive in Clayton at 10:30ish to meet with a realtor. This will give me a good idea what the FE and trip times will be to get home from work and to get to work from the beach. The FE should be 5-10 MPG better with the VX.
Sunday's trip to Pittsburgh will be only 8 hours instead of the usual 10.5.
I forgot to write down my numbers this morning, but on the way to the wife's work was 56.* and the trip to my work, due to taking the "long" way(.5 miles farther), I ended up at 63.*. This is a new best for going to my shop. I got off work early because we had inventory today so I went out and did some practicing on the county roads. For an 18.5 mile trip I ended up with 72.5 mpg by the time I got back to my spot in my driveway.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall, torque is how much of the wall you take with you.
Reading, PA? I wanna go, it's only 2 hours away too...Hmm.
