I went from Charlotte, NC, to just east of Pittsburgh last Friday, went to Niagara falls and back on Monday, drove all around my old stomping grounds visiting people, and drove home this morning. I managed to put just under 2000 miles on the car, and on the trip up and the trip back I only got 31mpg. I was going between 60 and 75 the whole time and it's up and down hills through virginia and northern NC, but i expected a bit more. I had about 40lb of luggage and of course my heavy wheels, should i have gotten better than 31?? or is that ok under the circumstances? your thoughts.....
