Negative I hand calculate on every tank of fuel. And no the wife rode up front. The LIE O Meter is not your friend. I use an App on my phone and calculate all fuel fillups and repairs along with expenses.

First long trip

I took off Saturday morning around 4 am headed for Anderson Indiana about a 4-5 hr drive for me with stops. Wife and both Goldens in the back seat, when I pulled into the RV dealer I had just over a 1/4 tank and had averaged 22 MPG while running 65-72mph. I averaged 21.5 on the way back with headwind Pretty happy with a big truck doing that. Was not happy Sunday morning waking up to a coolant leak on the upper radiator hose.
