    Not a chance the way I drive. I was doing 18 mpg but the hills of Kentucky and Tenn. dropped it.

    I saw a brand new Navigator get popped by Georgia's finest south of Macon. The road was open and clear (moderate trffic- iwas doin 85) and he had been shadowing me but suddenly he pulled ahead. Trooper was lasering from the overpass and I saw them pull onto entrance- he did too. I had a tense moment- but they lit him up....

    Love it when someone else gets nailed instead of me.

    We always slow down going through Georgia, those boys are the revenue kings of the interstate across this nation! LOL

    I love driving through Kentucky and Tennessee, especially that stretch between Chattanooga and Nashville on 24... Goodness, now that I think about it, it's been 24 years! Well, at least I had the joy of running through there in my muscle car a couple of times.

    Well got to Naples yesterday about 130 pm.

    Unwinding, mpg meter shows 17.2 given I was driving 80 mph most of the way and have 500 lbs of furniture/stuff not bad. Sure is warm here.

    Drove home last thursday-friday with my brother. We left at 5 am thurs. made it to Cincinnati.
    Then friday the last 4 hours. AVG 17.5 mpg.

    Taking the Denali in fo a free oil change today. It has 5500 miles on this oil- changed right after I bought it. Now has 28 % on OLM but the oil is dark enough I am going to do this. Given it had the origininal plugs at 134k its cheap prevention.
