Set new personal best for a tank. 42.36 (412.2 mi.)

Coasted in N (ALOT), went the speed limit or less changed some of the city part of my commute to use another hill. 44psi in tires.

Adding racing discs (hubcaps) this week found a great deal and will share details soon, also goes to dealer tomorrow for 5k mi oil change which will be synthetic.

Kicking around 50psi in the tires.

Lastly, Campaign signs are popping up everywhere may have to see what creative things I can block.

There is a weird 55-65mph dead spot for 3rd and 4th. To work it out you just use the pedal.

Whats the road just north of your route that runs parallels it. Any chance that you could get on that and travel about 53 mph in 4th or would the traffic be stop and go?

Speed limit is 45 there is roughly 25 sets of lights and slower than stop and go traffic. There is about the same number of subdivisions at each of those lights with commuters heading the same way. In non rush hour that is definatly a perferred FE route. My route is 2 toll roads to avoid it.
