Wondering about a few details for the winners:
What was the total mileage for the Highest mileage; What was the best MPG; and What was the farthest distance driven.

Thanks!

Highest odometer was in excess of 400,000 miles, although I don't recall the exact number.

I think best mileage was 58 MPG.

Farthest distance was 3,100 miles by Google Maps, although John took a longer route through Michigan.

Sorry, all three of these things were a show-of-hands, and I didn't take very good notes on the final stats.

442,207 miles if I remember correctly, it's obviously higher now.
