I assume that's what I'd get as well. But with 640 miles to drive, I wasn't going to do 65. Especially riding with people who needed to stop every hour or so. Plus the backup in Wytheville. Ugh.
I've done enough long drives now that I'm just tired of it and just want to get to my destination. Screw the MPGs! Unless I'm going somewhere close by. Then I'm all about them <3
I know how you feel, i'm the same way. 38MPG at 80MPH is pretty good anyway. I drive through Wytheville from time to time on my way to Tennessee, been lucky no major issues for me.
