    Yeah, that first 60 is a nice feeling of accomplishment. However, the big variables are weather and weekends, heat and cold and short weekend trips are your enemy. You'll find those 60's are easier when temps are in the low 70s and you make a couple longer weekend urban trips. Lesser effect is your skillful driving :eek:

    Great job RichL:clap2::peace::thumb::cheer2::D

    abq sfr, I have the opposite problem. Short commute and trips during the week, but longer on weekends.
