A gas mileage experiment

This 23.1 mpg in the Ford Flex Limited with the Ecoboost was on a drive from Black Mountain, NC all the way to our house in Winston-Salem and we even had to stop for gas and to feed the boys along the way. But it was mostly highway. We usually drive this one downtown with the boys and then just under 16 is more the norm.

This was a mellow drive in the MINI Cooper S from our house in Winston-Salem to the Apple store in Greensboro. Over 33 mpg is certainly very nice for a fast car with a Borla race exhaust, but more typical is a 25 mpg average.

I am not from Berlin and only have been to that amazing city for a few days, but one thing is for sure, I could and would enjoy a nice Berliner right now.

Late fall in NC

Fall is almost over but it is still decently warm here. And we are not complaining.
