Welcome to the grind (Edit by Gord - forgot to start Feb thread!) Drove to the movie theater Saturday afternoon.3.8 miles there and back. Sunday we drove to the forest preserve to walk in the snow. Got a little bit stuck because parking lots were not open ?! Cook County is extremely lame. Where I live ( DuPage County ) They open up the forest preserves at dawn , or one hour later. Today , 25 deg F in E;lk Grove , roads still have crusty snow , which makes acceleration tricky and gliding..............the car slows down very rapidly in the snow , so I try to maintain some momentum. 10.1 miles fcd = 45.8 x .943 = 43.2 MPG.
