Guess the mileage II??

I've got to make a Dallas run tomorrow. I called the rent car place and asked for the cheapest and most fuel efficient car they have. So what do I end up with?

Dodge Journey


EPA highway 21

The gauge read full when I picked it up and drove it home today. It only has 1400 miles on it so it not even broken in yet. First impressions. The thing is a brick. Lots of room inside though, you could easily live in it if you had to.

The trip will be mostly highway total trip will be about 230 miles.

60 mph and it will be early so I think it will be no A/C. I'm liable to get caught in Dallas rush hour traffic through.

Is that actually the most efficient vehicle they rent, or just what they had left?

24.1 ... and I want the cling if I win!

Everything except EOC.

Metro: That was they only thing they had but I called 3 days in advance It will end up costing 2x as much in fuel if they would have given me a Focus or something much smaller.
