I was going to call BS on that gas mileage, but I recently took the rooftop tent off and got an easy everyday 18mpg (previously I was getting 15mpg) without any funny business. It's amazing what taking 120 bulky pounds off the roof will do. I look forward to getting 400-mile tanks again.

I did cut it pretty close yesterday, but there were still a few gallons left in the tank.


One of these days when I'm carrying a gas can I'll run it completely out to see where that line really is.
