Tank 241 - 14 June 2K10

This morning I refueled at the Wawa in Fredericksburg. After 419.9
miles, Wawa squoze in 11.403 gallons of gas, making for a fuel economy
of 36.82 miles per gallon for the tank.

I think the last two results in the 36.xx range are because my trips
home are taking forever. And also when I check the traffic reports
before I go home and see my main route is a red stripe, I take the long
way home that goes waaaay around the base and spits me out near my exit.
I am moving most of the time, but there are curvy roads and hills and
more accelerating and things to suck my mileage number lower.

Still, I have realized that I would rather be moving in the car instead
of crawling along the interstate surrounded by so many others, which is
a trapped, futile feeling.

So although it takes longer and it takes more gas, I much rather drive
the route where I am going along faster than 5 or 15 miles an hour.

  1. You've burned through 12 tanks of gas in the time it has taken us to burn through 1/2 a tank of gas in a Ford Escort!
