When driving long distances with no constraints, do you travel for time (arriving in the least or decent amount of time) or for gas mileage (slower to use less gas).

I've done the Memphis to Augusta trip several times now. At first I was driving 70-90 MPH with great time, but horrible gas mileage. Then I started doing a steady 65-75 MPH with a pretty decent time and gas mileage. Just recently, I did a steady 60 MPH to Atlanta, still had almost a 1/4 tank of gas (previously had to fill up 20 miles out from Atlanta), but I couldn't take it anymore and sped up to 65-75 MPH. I gained a few minutes back, but overall spent over 30 extra minutes on the road.

I think the 65-75 MPH will be my standard. What say ye?

Typically, if I'm traveling, it's not work related, just for vacation. At that time, anything that I will be doing at the airport is checking Facebook or on this website and that gets old rather quickly. I really need to find more websites. Smiley: frown
