Good thing the truck driver didn't have to stop after a car cut him off.

There was also a strong tailwind. I reset it just for giggles but didnt think it would be that good.

Althought I did a hand calc vs the computer on this tank of gas. 19.5 computer 16.0 hand calc. Never did trust those computers....
