Kilotank (and more!)

It wasn't easy getting good mileage on those steep Norwegian mountain roads.
I even climbed Trollstigen, one of the most beautiful roads in the world.

The last two tanks also got #1-spot on the POE-list and into the top 10 on the absolute list!

Yes, I'm a bit tired of P&G now.

Thanks!

I can beat 60 MPG on a scolding hot day if I have the road to my self. (No idiots in my way when I'm accelerating, and no maniacs behind me when I'm coasting!)

Going up I was very glad I had the V6 model!

The weather was a bit cloudy, rainy, and cold.

I have a thread for the mods: Princess modding thread

My driving style is strict Pulse and Glide, always engine off during glides. At nights when I have to use the halogens instead of my LED-DRLs, I keep my engine on for about half my glides in order to not drain my battery.

And of course down steep enough hills, I have to DFCO.

You could say this is a "megatank" since 1000km = 1 megametre

Congratulations on your mega tank!
