Back in the day, before Internet, I did the same thing. Only we called it hitchhiking.

I remember I could hitchhike more miles in one day than I could drive. Several times, I hitched 1000 miles in one day. The most I ever drove was 900.

Great way to save gas and meet interesting people. Once got picked up by a young woman with a baby. She was going to a bridge club meeting and wanted a conversational topic, so she picked up a hitchhiker.
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
