My average speed seems to stay right around 30-35 mph according to the trip
computer.  I think I've only calculated fuel economy under 20 mpg a couple of
times (other than track events) since day 1 almost 3 years ago.  I did run an
entire tank once at 27.5 mpg, but that was driving from Gaylord, Mi to
Baraga, Mi.  Most of the driving was on a 2 lane road with a 55 mph speed
