    Last night was pretty rubbish - took ages to get out of the City mainly caused by a pop-up cycle lane and increased traffic, I was sitting at high teens mpg after 2 miles of crawling even with manually turning engine off maybe 25 times!, 65°F:

    This morning, motorway route then on to get some cheap gas, 58°F:

    Thanks Edwin, a bit down on last 2 tanks but happy with that :D

    Last night was a bit better - the pop-up cycle lane still caused plenty of crawling traffic but it wasn't as bad as the previous day! - the good news is it's being removed in a week's time as traffic has increased from 35% to 82% of normal, 79°F:
    48.4 / 21.9

    This morning, motorway route, 62°F:

    Details in the Coronavirus Deaths thread & long PS-riddled posts are establishing ccp coronavirus history: Major new developments are that India rockets past 3 million ccp coronavirus cases. I mean rockets!!!! At one point nearly a million cases & 3 million cases behind the rages of the ccp coronavirus in Brazil & the US, India, with its 1.4 billion PEOPLE, has REDUCED the case difference to Brazil to 499,003(UPDATE, Sept.2, 2020: Leaping after Brazil, the case difference is down to 112,534), AND REDUCED the case difference to the US, by a fifth+ of a million, to 2,770,546 million cases(UPDATE, Sept. 2, 2020: Leaping after the US, the case difference has reduced by over half a million, now down to 2,428,872), despite US present rages). ccp coronavirus has broken out of India cities into the vast countrysides. While constructing this post & leaving for an hour, India has added about 19,500 ccp coronavirus cases..... oh,oh, up to 37K additional cases.
    World ccp coronavirus deaths are over 8 tenths of a million, & approach a quarter of 100 million cases.
    The ccp coronavirus savagery in large populated countries is monumental. However, the human suffering of smaller populated countries, as I have been able to minimally list in the ccp coronavirus thread, tells weepings that are more accessible to consciousness.

    Hi Gord. "Mobile home for vacations" and "holiday homes or static caravans" line up fairly well, IMO. I don't know if that's a "thing" over here. Vacation homes tend to run the gamut over here. Also, some people live in (static) mobile homes as their primary residence. So... hard to say.

    Thanks Bill. I read some people in US live in mobile homes as a way to get cheaper housing but they aren’t really designed for that purpose :rolleyes:

    Let me clarify a little bit. What Bill calls (static) mobile homes are rarely if EVER moved.
    Built in factories , they are towed to the site.
    They are a lower-cost alternative to "traditional" houses. No , I don't know what
    "traditional" means ; that's a moving target.

    Today , 78 deg F in Naperville , very humid. It rained on me the last ten miles.
    Well , it rained on the Honda ; I remained dry.
    35.1 miles , fcd = 51.3 MPG.
    Tank should be approx. 50.9 MPG ( I didn't check).
