OMG, today i had to drive from san diego out to Calexico CA, just for the heck of it, i check my average MPG in several locations, at one point i got 25.7 MPG, BUT, it was a downhill grade, 9 miles long, at a 6% decline, at 65 MPH using cruise control,
this is the top of the hill

that hill drops from 4,400 feet, down to below sea level in the desert

i'm going to top off my gas tank today, to see how many gallons of gas that i used overall
