February 26, 2009

...Quando with a guess of 243 miles! Context clues, people! In the image posted you can see I'm in DS-- drive sport--that can't be good for economy. Also to consider: I live in the city and never once for these 230 hit a freeway or even an uncongested street (but you couldn't have knownthat). Closest estimate for gallons:kurtamaxxxguy who guessed 20.5.Our 2008 X5 took 20.429.

(And to those who asked: It's an old picture. The X5 is in Detroit but in honor of Car of the Week, I pulled some things from my library.)
