I have officially joined the league of old lady drivers everywhere.
Let me preface the explanation with a few facts...
I love my car.
The Sentra usually gets anywhere from 28-32 mpg.
Today on a road trip from Hoover to Mobile (and back again) I got an impressive 36 miles per gallon!
Wanna know how I did it?
I drove the speed limit.
Wild, isn't it?
I usually max out around 78-80 mph while on the interstate. I never drive over 80 (intentionally). So pulling back to 70 mph was not a drastic cut-back. But because I did cut back I made it from 60 miles South of Montgomery to my apartment on a quarter of a tank!
