Your trip down the beach sounds about like what I get out of mine. I can make it about 180-200 miles on a tank with mixed city/hwy driving. Also, though, that's mileage with an out of whack speedo and odometer. I haven't adjusted anything to compensate for my 33" tires, so I'm actually going further per gallon than that, although I'm not sure how much further. I'm about to make my first road trip with it since the new motor, about 350 miles through the Rockies. We'll see how that turns out.
It seems a lot of people call me a fart smeller...but we all know they really mean "smart feller."
