I got 15.2 mpg coming from Nevada, 224 miles and this time I'll checkit going back up-

Probably 14. ??--we'll see how my 5.38s do climbing mountain freeways-

Good luck on your trip. Where in Nevada are you traveling to? I live in Minden, the weather is at least looking great for you considering we haven't gotten didily squat for precipitation.
Bon voyage!

Be careful at the top of the mountains, Jimbo, I hear those strong gears have so much "umph" that they may propel you right off of the top and you'll take off like a plane.

:D Thanx guys, it was an uneventful trip 3-1/2 hrs, very little snow at DONNER, but still snow in the N/E side of the mountains=

OK My trip DOWN from 4200 ft to 7000 ft to sea level(two weeks ago), was 15.2 mpg (math figured) and

This trip from sealevel, to 7000 ft to 4200 ft--with the jeep loaded (GVW-5500lbs), resulted in 223.3 miles and 14.99 gals=----14.89 mpg-

Heh Heh, probably not, but the 5.38s really helped the auto engine braking coming down the hills-at 70 mph

Heh Heh, my son wanted to get one of the "PREDATORS" at Indian Springs, painted "Detonator yellow", but the Base CMDR said-"Maybe you'd like to spend all year in afghanastan, instead of 4 months" :rofl:

I'll be back on line, if I ain't lookin for snow back above Truckee !
