1996 SC2
Default Road Trip

WOOTS... Made my road trip to Phoeniz, AZ and back home.. and the car didnt blow up. .. Was about 1850 miles both ways drove almost non-stop save 4 hrs 1/2 way there to sleep and then 2 hrs 1/3 of the way back to sleep. No problems at all car ran like a champ though I noticed the longer into the continuous driving it seemed to burn oil a lil faster.. But only had to had 1.5 quarts on the way down and 1 on the way back. I averaged bout 32-38 MPG on an automatic... Seemed to get 32ish in the hills and that .. I was to lazy to not use the cruise control ..
But I think on the I-17 south from Flagstaff to Phoenix I averages 40-50mpg.. cuz I was flying down that road.. at one point the speedo read 100 and the tach wasnt even at 3.5k rpms. OMG is that a fun highway. LOL.. SC2 was great on the road, didnt even squeek the tires... (well not loud enuf to hear over the radio)..
But anyways .. good trip no problems I love my Satty more then ever.
