Did about 570 miles round trip for dinner, plus another ~160 miles driving through the beautiful Appalachians. Averaged 27.5mpg which I'd say is pretty good for all that mountain road driving.
'98 S70 T5M - 282,000+mi - forever a project
'99 S70 "AWD" - 220,000+mi - part out :cry:

I'll probably only end up putting on like 80. I won't be doing all the driving. I was just realizing in the 5 years I've owned my sedan I've only driven it around 20k miles.

Nice. Thanks for the earlier post inspiration to harvest my gas tank of the parts car. Already have a nibble on both the fuel and tank
