    Today , 59 deg Fin Naperville , wind ENE 6.
    54 deg in Elk Grove Village , wind NE3.
    35.1 miles , fcd = 64.4 x .943 = 60.7 MPG.
    Tank is at 500.1 miles, fcd = 69.2 x .943 = 65.2 MPG.
    Did NOT take scenic route home last night , I was tired.
    Still ended up with 71.5 MPG (fcd). Taking the scenic route
    would probably yield about 78-80 fcd.

    Today , 70 deg F in Naperville , 71 in Elk Grove.
    Because I wanted to stop at an amazon locker , I took a different
    route to work today. Partially , it's Scenic Route #2 in reverse , but part of
    it was on tollway. I got off the tollway at North Ave , because it looked
    like I was going to get to work too early. I can get there anytime I like ;
    I'm the guy who opens up in the morning. 33.1 miles, fcd = 74.6 x .943 = 70.3 MPG.
    Tank is at 103.2 mies , fcd = 73.5 x .943 = 69.3 MPG.

    Oh, oh!! I don’t think many Symphony # 2’s would sound good.... in reverse..... even partially. However, Bach played many melodies in reverse.... even up-side down..... all with harmony. I suppose the technique was even used before the time of Bach & readily the technique was used often after Bach.
    Could you run Scenic Route #2 in reverse, while inverted? Think you might need an airplane to pull that one off. Guess you could modify a street vehicle so you could operate the vehicle while up-side down. But the police won’t like the procedure.... & you won’t either, after being up-side down for an hour.
