New respect for my Goat!

Check this out, I was cruising through Montana yesterday on route 43 towards I-15. Note the gauges; trac off, cruise enabled, and most impressive-25mpg average, after many sprints up to 120+

ya i got to admit driving in traffic kinda sucks especially when your legs are sore from the gym the day before and it feels like any second your leg is gonna give out and you'll smash into the guy in front of you ha ha. but ya you cant beat that sixth gear when your at a hundred and only 2500rpm its awesome. i can average 29 mpg going 70mph with cruise set.. one time it was the best i ever gotten was 32 mpg just had the cruise set at 65 mph on i nice cool night.. i know your all gonna say bull sh!t but its honest to god true i love my goat!! but currently im only gettin about 10mpg cause i only drive about 1-5 miles average with a LOT of stop lights i'm not used to this city crap ha ha

straight piped cat back, JBA shortys, JBA wires, AEM ca, and 421 slp tune

I call 6th gear making only 2500 rpm at 100mph, hence the 25mpg average.
