Slogged through 10 hrs and 46 minutes of driving the TDi from Orlando. I stopped in NC 3 times in 3 consecutive exits to find a bathroom, lunch and a diesel pump that was pay at the pump. Otherwise all nonstop. Averaged 71 mph. I can turn off the am I there yet part of my brain in the car most of the time. Harder for me to do that on a bike.

Oh, and the TDi averaged 47mpg. It is definitely a highway car.
