488 miles at 8mpg and $2.80 per gallon is only $170.00 Playing it extra safe, huh?

I figure I'll spend about $150 on gas to travel 542 miles round trip. $200 to play it safe.

Oh. I figured 488 was round trip. I assumed you were in Seagrove like your profile says. That's only 280 miles one way.

Re: Gas Costs

I will likely be full leaving and filling up in Ashville area. Will likely take two takes each way maybe one extra for driving around Harlan. So 5 tanks at about $65.00 each. About $325 I'm guessing.

Damn! What kind of mileage are you getting? The best i've seen in mine so far is 650 till E, and that was on an exceptional tank where I kept my foot out of it. The turbos are too much fun

Re: Gas Costs

These fuel prices are not looking as bad now - Last night I did a fuel budget for Moab - and once you clear Kansas hardly any fuel showing up right now under $2.95 a gallon and reaching as high as $3.53. Moab is around $3.40!

Re: Gas Costs

~679 miles one way, but I am lucky and have a work trip in southern Indiana that is paying $0.54 a mile round trip so that should pay for the majority of fuel for the entire trip
