Gas milage went good to bad

Buddy and I took a quick trip to mexico yesterday to pick up some things,Ahh aspirin---- and some 800 MG Ibuprofin some lotion and a couple T-shirts and a very cool leather rifle case... but being in a hurry we ran from 80 to 110 MPH.. holy krap batman my milage went from 42 down to 32 MPG and the harvey I was with got 33 MPG!!!!!!!!! 386 miles round trip.... Now I know what a tugboat captain feels like...

Ever notice at 110 how much more the 1800 has?

Right the Pooka:
P-o-o-k-a. From old Celtic mythology. A fairy spirit in animal form. Always very large.
The pooka appears here and there, now and then, to this one and that one at his own caprice.
A wise but mischievous creature. Very fond of rum-pots, crack-pots…and those posting on VTXOA.

I am suprised you still got 32 mpg running in excess of 100. Trading time for money.
