Thanks Richard and Rhonda,

I am taking my maiden voyage this coming week and driving from Phoenix to Pittsburgh. What is the most fuel efficient speed (60 series DD) to travel since fuel is now over $4.00?

I am glad to see all of you fellow car guys and Gals. It looks like we all have the same disease. Anything with a motor and we are smitten.

Ken: I pull a 12 ton trailer most of the time but will still get 6+ mpg at a cruising speed of 60-65 mph. I'll be doing just the opposite in 3 weeks, heading from Sebring to Phoenix. They had a huge cycle competition here 2 weeks ago that you would have enjoyed. Have a nice, safe trip to Pittsburgh.
