The Hyundai Short Lead tank finally ran out (not quite but within a gallon or two from empty) so its all mine from here on out. I filled in Flagstaff, AZ and am headed to Mount Evans just outside of Idaho Springs, Colorado a few miles west of Denver.
From the Flagstaff station to Kayenta, AZ McDonald’s where I am typing this up and setting up the photos, Google Maps shows Flagstaff Sinclair to McDonald’s In Kayenta, AZ
to be 147 miles. The Elantra GT shows just 140.7 miles for a 4.3% under report with plenty of advanced techniques thrown in for good measure…

Notice anything different about this one??? Let us just say I was driving a vehicle not available to the public yet and he probably was too given the plates and extra graphics.

Initial top off in Flagstaff AZ - 6915 ft ASL.
Was 100 degrees F and dropped a degree by the time I got the Canon out -- 99 degrees in Tuba City, AZ.

Kayenta AZ – uncalibrated SG-II at 88.3 mpg, Trip A/B = 140.7 miles (147 miles actual per Google Maps) and 94 degrees F.
And why the SG-II? Because for 2013, the Elantra GT updates the Trip A/B and Odometer but does not update the aFCD
So with a 1,200’ elevation drop over 147 miles, the Elantra is pulling somewhere between 80 and 88 mpg more than likely. Not bad for the first segment with a lot more miles to go
Once I leave this McDonald’s, it’s a quick trip through a portion Monument Valley and than on towards Mount Evans and its 14,235’ summit with the 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT on its All-American Road Trip.
