Fuel Economy: Still testing but around 42mpg

Last weekend I drove from Knoxville TN to Salt Lake City Utah. It was around 1800 miles and travel time was 12 hours on Saturday December 16 to get to Kansas City, 10 hours on Sunday December 17 to get to Cheyenne Wyoming, and 6 hours to get to Salt Lake City Utah. I loaded down my 2013 VW Sportwagen with about 1000 lbs of clothes, guns, ammo, cooking supplies, 4 bikes, 2 pairs of skis, and a bunch of outdoor gear. My fuel mileage without all the weight and the bikes was around 40 mpg. I averaged about 25 mpg on the trip. I was getting about 300-330 miles per tank. The spread of fill stations off if I-80 driving through Nebraska and Wyoming was about 120 to 150 miles so I had to do some timing for the fuel stops. The best price for diesel was about 30 miles outside Kansas City at 2.73 per gallon. The worst was in Wyoming at 3.37 per gallon. I was a bit lucky on the 3.37 because right after I filled up in Wyoming all of the other price per gallon of diesel was 3.45 +. Overall on diesel I spent $243.20 to get 1800 miles with everything I wanted to start a new life in Salt Lake City.
