Just got done uploading all of my 400 or so pics from the last week to a simple webpage. Here is the link:
They are a little out of order since I took some with the phone on my camera and most with my regular digital camera.
These are a couple of my favorites:
I have been crunching some numbers and here is what I came up with....
Total miles travelled: 2839 ....this corrected from the Sophy's odometer which reads high due to the smaller tires.
Gallons of Gas used: 113.5
Total Cost of Fuel: $400
Average Mileage: 24.8 mpg ...again using the corrected miles
High Tankful: 27.6 mpg
Low Tankful: 17.0 mpg ...this was the tank used to go to the top of Pikes Peak. <G>
Average $/gal: 3.57 ...I bought mostly midgrade
Sophy run great the whole trip, even all the way to the top of Pikes Peak,, until she was 2 miles from home. As I approached my exit from I-75, she suddenly started running on 2 cylinders and lost a ton of power, obviously. I managed to get off the highway and through a couple of lights and into a parking lot. Popped the hatch to see what the problem was. Turns out the 3 inch long linkage from the control arm to the butterfly valve had popped off the RH carb. Fortunately it was still attached at one end. Popped it back on and made it home without further incident. Guess it was her way of reminding me to not take her for granted.
She will get a much deserved oil-change and tune-up in the next day or two. I think I am even going to take the carbs off and re-bush that throttle shafts like I have been meaning to do for sometime. She has always run a little rough at light throttle and over the last couple of hours of the drive home she didn't want to idle great and started running a bit rich.
Yup...time for a tune-up.
I am going to update my blog with some of my favorite pictures from the trip and the rest of my daily account of my whole Type 3 Invasion experience. Here is the link again.
Might not get to it all for a few days. Lots of stuff to catch up on here.
Thanks to everyone that helped make this Invasion a huge success and a special Thanks to my follow Eastern Caravaners for making it so memorable for me.
