I can do a leg in one stop (fuel and bathroom) about halfway across Penn. I've generally averaged about 52mpg out and 49mpg back.


about 14-15 hours each way

Sounds like my drive between Oroville, CA and Prescott, AZ.

What really got to me, everybody was washing their hands at rest areas. Then to get out you had to grab as many as THREE door handles before you were outside again, DUH?

Hello all, Just got back from an 8 day trip to Silver city, NM from Jax, FL and back again 1700ish miles and 26 hours each way. Most of the restaurants you can get curbside service from, small brewery in silver city was doing walk in take out growlers and food. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing out in nature and at the hot springs in the gila national forest. The rest stops all had hand driers where we were and yes a few had doors to go out to get out I used gloves, also at all 6 fill-ups we did on our legs of the trip. This trip was done in our b5.5 bhw chainless passat with 225k on the meter due for an oil change and a brake fluid reservoir due to cracking in the top corner. overall mpg is 34 still rocking the 5 speed auto and doing very well btw with the stage one tune kinda getting itchy for a stage 2 and exhaust mods.

I think I'll put a packet of paper napkins in the car and put one in my pocket to use on the door handles when exiting.
