Well, after 2500 miles in 3 days, the wife and I are still married, the kids survived, and the dog did not jump out of the window. Busy now adding mods and making ready for our first trip in two weeks!

If you don't already, check out GasBuddy app. My copilot will search for the best fuel stops while enroute. Every bit helps.
So funnily enough- diesel in Georgia was $2.59. Diesel in South Carolina was the cheapest I've *ever* bought it at $1.79.

That's what I mean. And if your getting 100+ gallons that would be a $80 difference.

Yeah, that was the first that I really noticed it. I was shocked at such a price swing AND got lucky as I got fuel on the better side of that!

Good score this time on your part. That means you have some extra money now!

And if you had more capacity you would of saved even more money. I'm sure fuel is going to be higher where you're going.

Let me guess. I-85 around Gaffney, SC? Usually as cheap as anywhere I see traveling back and forth to our races.
