first long drive

Soooo took my car today for her first long drive (with me as the owner)

Took my kids to the beach (360 mi roundtrip) and she surprised and very much disappointed me...Ran strong the whole way, no overheating or anything; which i was worried about b/c of past experiences with cars and all the traffic when you get closer to the beach. BUT, i seriously used 1 1/2 tanks of gas to get there and back...equals out to 15mpg, wtf?!?!

Guess its time for a tune up...

Re: first long drive

well didn't hit much traffic, considering. There was only 1 spot that it was stop n go for about 20 mins, but other than that it was smooth sailing. But how fast i was going, couldn't really tell you since my speedometer doesn't work. I can guesstimate though, stayed around 3500-4000 rpms so i'm guessing 65~75 give or take lol
