2008 Audi R8: The Trip is Over
June 20, 2008
After four days, 10 states, 2,877 miles, one quart of Castrol Synthetic, one mullet head, and two fantastic BBQ lunches, we coasted into Santa Monica on fumes.
Over the course of the trip, the Audi R8 drank 144.8 gallons of premium gasoline and averaged 19.8 mpg.
At nearly $5 a gallon, you do the math. But I'll tell you this...
It was worth every penny. Everybody should drive a great car across this great country at least once in their lives. If you haven't, make it a priority. You haven't seen America until you've driven through it.
