I am at a town right now, where the speed limit is 15 to 35 MPH
i save gas by NOT running in DRIVE, i don't want the MDS to kick in

i pulled out of San Diego California & drove up to Toronto, then down to Connecticut

i did an very unusual test, i wanted to see what it would cost the average Hemi powered Ram driver to drive from Coast to Coast, using 89% octane
knowing that on both coasts, gas is higher priced then the rest of the States in between.

I drove 3480 miles & it cost me $788 for gas


mind you i started with a 1/2 tank, filled up the first time in Yuma Arizona
i now have a 1/2 tank of gas & i have not bought any gas in Canada, New York, or Connecticut
I did buy gas in Scranton, Pa. & New Jersey
