My submission for the 70MPG challenge (SRA class)

I wanted to try and see how well I could do on the trip from the grocery store (Walmart in Sutton, WV) to my apartment (in Glenville WV), but last time I hypermiled the route I only averaged 67.xxMPG... I checked tire pressure at the gas station next to Walmart, they all were really low, so I ran them up to 60psi (tires are wasted anyway and I really wanted to succeed, I normally do 55), and set off... I note the trip as three legs, Sutton to Heaters on WV-4, Heaters to Burnsville on WV-5, and Burnsville to Glenville on WV-5, for 28mi in total... I set personal bests on every leg of the trip and totally smashed my goal of 70mpg at the end...

Leg 1 ended at 99.5mpg avg
Leg 2 ended at 92.2mpg avg
Trip ended in Glenville at a total average of 77.4mpg!

Car was loaded with myself and GF, and a weeks worth of groceries so it kinda fit Slowmovers criteria of the car being loaded for the test lol
