2001 L-Series 3.0L Sedan
Default Midwest Drive

I'm currently on my way from Michigan to Louisiana. I stopped for the night in Marion, IL. Thus far, the drive has been not too bad. There's snow everywhere, but the interstates are open. The L300 is averaging 28mpg with me driving my conservative 65mph and using 87 octane.

I have 95600 miles thus far. On Monday after I get home, the car is going to my mechanic for a timing belt. After a 1200 mile drive from the top of the country to the bottom, she deserves that.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Midwest Drive

I have logged 95k so far myself on my 01 L300.. Been almost 4.5 years since I bought it. I put mileage on my car mindlessly for the first 3 years but now, I dont drive much.. especially long distance. I'd rather take a flight and enjoy a good rental car...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I did 1200 miles last week went to Upper MI and Chicago.......after my brake pads stopped smoking from the traffic jams in Chicago I will need brakes soon. I will never wish this on anyone......getting stuck on the expressway in snow storm! I think that is my vision of hell. Plus it so hard to stop get off the X-way and find a restroom!

Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics: no matter who wins you're still retarded.
