Vegas Trip Stats

I covered 745 miles door-to-door, used 30.59 gallons of Shell 91 octane "V-Power" (24.35MPG) , and the engine consumed approximately 1/2 quart of oil.

The hotel was $349 for 5 nights, and I didn't keep track of what I spent on food, soda, coffee, and Gatorade/Powerade.

The amount spent for fun and friends?


And a quickie "Thought For The Day" from my buddy Harry over at Self Sufficient Mountain Living....


  1. I'm surprised that the engine burned that much oil. Other than that, it seems as though the trip was well worth the trouble.

  2. It works out to about 1500 miles-per-quart. In the Old Days of big, honkin' V8's, that wouldn't be much at all.

    I suspect most of it was consumed by high-vacuum conditions caused by coasting downhill. The valve seals on almost any 30 year old engine can best be described as "crusty".....

  3. Glad the trip was fun, and nice infographic.


Keep it civil, please....
