Zombie Apocalypse / Most Range on a Tank Challenge
Just for fun. When the zombie apocalypse happens 😄 the Rebel 250 would make a good survival vehicle. Because, you know, gasoline will be hard to come by so it would have to be used sparingly.
I searched for a maximum range thread, if it exists I didn't find it. What brought this up is, I ran full blast to my dad's house and it barely made it. Now I have found a shorter route on all surface streets. For those that have seen my Rebel AFR thread, I think maximum mpg would be achieved in the 45 mph - 50 mph zone.
So my challenge is going to be to make it all the way to my dad's house and back on one tank of fuel (2.6 gallons, 270 miles). I tend to believe if weather conditions are good, and speed is held to 50 mph or less, 100 mpg is possible.
This trip would be 270 miles ... so 100 mpg won't quite cut it. So I'm going to be having to be playing games, like killing the engines and coasting downhill as much as possible.
Yeah I know. I'm crazy. But the Rebel is just a toy for me so I'm gonna play. Either way, during this challenge, I can tell by when it goes on reserve if I'm going to be able to make it home before completely running dry. So I can siss out and gas up before I do if I need to.
This challenge will be in the spring 2020 sometime.
Up until then, WHAT'S THE FURTHEST YOU'VE GONE ON A TANK OF FUEL?

The only changes so far.
