It will depend on circumstances. Since my Mom passed away back in March, my sister and I have been working on clearing out her house so it can be put up for sale. Thus, I have not been able to go anywhere other than a day trip to the Bay Area GTG. In August is the annual Flyin' Miata Open House that I'd like to attend with the Miata; if the 2016 Fest is out West somewhere then I might be able to make it. Otherwise driving from California to Colorado and back then driving from California to somewhere on the East Coast and back again a couple of weeks later might be too much.

Hmmm, if the Fest is in Arizona say the Flagstaff/Sedona/Prescott region, I could tie it in with a house hunting trip to Prescott as our next big thing is to downsize, sell our property here in California, and move to Prescott.

At least Flagstaff/Sedona would not be far when compared to 3400 miles to Maine this year for me!

You could do that at 15 mpg! Right??

And those East Coasters could all stop at Vegas and DOUBLE their money - some of them could go home with more money in their pockets than when they started, right?

Keep it under 4000 RPM, and that 27 becomes more like 34+, on a 1.6 liter Miata.

(4000 is when it goes into open loop, and the fuel economy proceeds to go to total crap.)

Actually when I bought it in July '89 I would get an average of 30 mpg, but when the CARB mandate for RFG came in, we were told it would cause about a 10% hit to mileage. Sure enough I started getting 27/28 mpg. I usually try to keep it between 3000 and 4000 just for the reason you state. Actually it has not been my daily driver since for the last 7 years so I only fill it about every 9 - 11 weeks and it is mainly used locally so my current average is around 25 MPG. Oh, I did get 34.8 MPG tank on a trip back in 2002 for the Northern Exposure event by Ottawa, Canada.

If you attended TDIFest, please check your email (and spam folder) for a post-event survey from Fred. It's important that we get your feedback on this year's event so that we can better serve you in future years. Please tell us what you liked, what you didn't like, and take the time to rate which activities are the most important to you.
