Yeah, it was dead even there and back, I think the west to east route is steeper maybe? At least I was able to take the truck outta' gear and let it coast more on the Vail to Boulder stretch... and it was mo' cooler which might give a little more pop to the old 2F.
I was super stoked to get that kind of fuel mileage. I think with a 5 speed, I could get 18mpg! I might need to look into that verses an 8 cylinder.
