Today , 69 deg F in Naperville , 66 in Wood Dale and Toronto. I haven't said much about wind these past few weeks. It's either neglible or barely noticeable. Yes, I know this is the Windy City. 35.0 miles , 64.2 MPG. Tank is at 529.5 miles , 132 remaining , 66.4 MPG. On the way home yesterday , I took scenic route #2 , the shortest and one of the most efficient routes. But because SOMEWHERE in the Chicago area , 2 or 3 drops of rain fell , traffic was gridlocked. The first hour , I covered 9.3 miles. It's about 22 miles to the Planet Fitness in Naperville. At about 50 minutes into that mess , with two bars SOC , the engine lit up and ran for almost four minutes ( I may have covered 75 meters in that time. ) Ouch. After it got back up to three bars , the engine shut off again. Shortly after that , I was able to get off THAT horrible road onto a familiar detour road. But all this time derailed my schedule enough that I skipped my workout and went straight home. At one point (9.1 miles) the MPG dropped down to 47 fcd. By the time I got home , I nursed it back up to 68.9 MPG (fcd). For that route , with no stops , it should have been more like 76-78. I remember when driving was fun.
