First road trip.
We finally went on our first road trip in the Cherokee. We went from Reno NV to The Dalles OR, started with 2300 miles and ended with 3600 miles. I have to say it was the most comfortable long trip drive I have ever been on. We averaged 29.9 mpg which is funny, I checked AAA gas calculator before we left and it told me to expect to spend around $235 round trip, we came in just under $100 round trip.
Now I was nervous about keeping gas cost down, so I took off my roof basket at a cost of stretching room for our Pug(he didn't have much room in the back set). Next time I'm going to leave it on and I bet I still come in under AAA cost estimate (plus the Pug will be happy to have the whole back seat).
