First road trip 71 mph - 24 mpg

Drove from South Florida to Baltimore in my new to me 650i. Averaged 71 mph and 24 mpg. Mostly set the cruise control to 82 mph (gps adjusted 79-80). Ran an Escort 9500 plus waze. Saw a few cops but not many. One major slowdown in Jacksonville on the ring highway, and between DC and Baltimore.

First real run flat experience, definitely nosier and stiffer. Hitting round sewer covers in Baltimore was like a massive pothole. Never had that issue with my rental cars.

Head back Saturday, should be easier, as the map shows it all downhill.
