This car gets driven weekly in the spring-summer-fall. When not
getting on it, the car gets 13 – 15 MPG around town and 18 – 20
on the highway. In 4th gear, it will run below 3,000 RPM until
around 70 MPH. Once it’s warmed up, it runs between 180 –
190F, even in summer traffic. When not driven, the car is always
garaged. The tank gets stabilizer anytime it’s going to sit for
more than a couple weeks. The car is very loud and very fast.
