After owning the Berk since last November, I've finally gotten it on a real trip in the flatlands. Currently heading East on I-80 across Nebraska.
Now I drive pretty slow usually around 58 MPH. If the computer is correct, I'm averaging 15.2 MPG!!!
This was with the AC off and no head or tail wind.
If this is correct, then I'm more excited than ever to have bought this coach. Between Durango and Denver in heavy mountainous driving I was getting 10+.
Now I know that aerodynamic drag increases with the square of the speed. In other words, double the speed the drag increase by a factor of 4. Triple the speed, the drag increases 9 times.
I know most all of you will not drive as slow as I do (it's just not in the average persons genes to go slow), but I'm retired and have nowhere to go and the rest of my life to get there.
Boowho?? (HUGE "stuff" eatin' grin on my face!!!)
