Louisville road trip

Last week the boss and I took a 9 hour road trip to the Loiusville Farm Show. We took his 2007 Laramie QC 4x4 with 3.92 gears and 20's. Heading south we averaged 18.8 US mpg and 17.7 coming back to Ontario. On the way home it turned over to 410,000 kms. Other than maintenance, a couple sensors and a fuel pump it has been an excellent truck.
He won't hear of trading it. He has been changing oil every 10,000 kms, usually at a quick change along the road. He still doesn't add between changes.

Well we weren't in a race but average speed calculates just about 61 mph, including border crossing, lunch stop and fuel stop. Average driving speed 7_? mph. Didn't think we did that bad....
