    "Just" another 70, Edwin? :p

    My tires are rated 51 psi max, so 60 is only a little high. ;)

    Saturday we had a run out to the Peak District in the Jazz//Fit to do a bit of walking, pretty hilly going:
    46.7 / 24.1
    Came back a slightly different longer way, wow! Net downhill of course:
    63.9 / 27.2

    54.5mpg for the trip

    We did a 10.9 mile walk with the dog :D

    Yes, Andrew. But I take the lazy route (HEV). My Yokohama rim protectors that came with this car are only rated for 44 psi. Currently running 45F/42R. One of the Yoko's was destroyed by some road hazard on NYE and was replaced by some no-name tire that they assured me was LRR. About 16K miles on that one , 52K on the others. It will be a long time ( maybe another two years ) before I buy tires.

    Gord , I was doing about 200 miles a week when I was on "vacation" for the entire summer of 2013. That was a great summer !
