I can take two different ways to work. The first way is 26.6 miles and is a little hilly but nothing outrageous, and goes through 3 towns. The second way is 25.6 miles with extreme hills and gets me 2-4 mpg less. So the first way is better for overall fuel use, but the first way also contains 15 miles of one of the most beat up roads in the county, plus the whole road is a major deer crossing. But if it's icy, the hills and blind intersections on the second route make for a lot of accidents and the speed bumps on the highway tear up the car too. So it's a toss up pretty much.
