Bring money for fuel and munchies since you will be in your car foe a couple hours. A navigator would be a huge help as well.

1. Phil 1988 Subaru RX turbo EPA 19-23 Avg 20
2. Tom 1991 Nissan 240sx (man) 19-26 avg 22.5

If only you guys were a little further north...

I would've loved to see what the VX could do against the HF.

thank you Speedoholic for helping out on this

it was just two that headed off but it was a beautiful drive and the results are... After driving 115.2 miles

Josh (Speeoholic) managed to burn just 2.091 gallons of fuel in his 2009 Honda Fit for 55.0933mpg or 204% of EPA rating

Phil in his 1988 subaru RX burned 3.1 gallons of fuel for 37.161mpg or 186% of EPA rating

only two made this run which was a bit of a disappointment but over all it was a success and I will start the planning for a spring/early summer event
