Mileage: 155K Avant.
Vac leaks (1.3 bar vs 1.7) no WGFV vac -line over EM-
Tires 24 - 27 psi, set before run.
Boston to Maryland
Lighter throttle.........no boost runs afaik, dash gauge out.

12 gals in to "fill" in Wakefield MA / Irving 87 oct ($2.95)
366 miles later, last exit in NJ and the KING of cheap gas 14 gals to "fill" 87 oct ($2.89)

366/14 gals = 26.14 MPG.

I suspect this is a bit off, but the Avant is stock, indicated 75 - 80, and the thermo (I suspect) is stuck partially open as the temp was 1/4 on gauge during the drive.

Ambient temp 61 start 52 end.? ~ 7 hours with one stop.@ NJ truck stop. @366 miles.
900' climb Boston to Worcester MA, hills till Hartford CT then I-95 (flat) to NJ gas / truck stop, end just S of Baltimore.
