Heading back in the morningand weather may be a factor. Will see if there is any change on the return mileage.
Return trip was much worse. Averaged 16.6 mpg. Probably because it was uphill a good portion of the way. Good to know but it does not matter much to me since I did not buy it for fuel economy. But it does mean I will probably take the wife's ride instead of mine should we venture on any long trips. Besides, that will save the miles on mine.
