Dean,

Thanks for sharing the photos. Where is the stream you are crossing? We have a nice one waiting for you here is TN.

The temperature here in Chattanooga hit 99 today with a heat index of 106 but a front is expected tonight so the humidity is expected to drop so it should be in the mid 80s next week.

Drive safely and we'll see you soon,
Dom

On my trip last fall the mpg on my last five tanks of gas was 21.8, 20.5, 21.0, 21.9, and 20.9. Of course that was when I was keeping my speed down to 30-31 mph. If I had gone faster the mileage would have been less.

Thanks fellas. I've heard it stated all over the board..........but never from anyone that was doing any more than just guessing.

I'll add that I was running a standard NH carb. I don't know how that compares with the stock G for mpg.

Dean, does that old Garmin Nuvi find these roads for you?
The old forums are a gold mine of information.

Looks like he is in my area.
Give an old car guy a barn and he won't throw anything away.
