Wish I could do that, my Trip B meter keeps resetting itself every 4-5 months for no good reason. Think it may be rain-related. Very odd.
The max mileage you can accumulate on the trip meter is 10000 km. (6,200 miles)

There must be another Smoke Pearl Tour X in the area. I checked google maps and I've never driven on Zion Hill Rd. Weird huh.
So if you live on the western side of Franklin and come up north on Rt 93, you can get off on Exit 19 onto Rt 132(Park St) take a left on Sargent street, go up Zion Hill Road, then take a right on Hodgdon Rd. and another right to Cross Mill Road, this brings you into the center of Franklin on Rt 3. When their is a lot of traffic on Rt3, this is a shortcut vs. heading up to the Tilton Exit 20 and fighting traffic on RT#3 into Franklin. My TourX sighting was about 1 month ago. Bet it was you because NH only has about 8 TourX in the entire state!

Just did my first longer haul on my 2018 sport back. Mostly highway. Probably about average of 110 kph. Premium fuel with no ethanol. I’m very happy with the results. 6.2 L/100km

I think I saw the same tTourx in Meredith on 316 2020 pulling into a shopping center

I hope you don't feel like I'm stalking you or anything, but I did see the same color TourX in Meredith New Hampshire pulling into a shopping center on 3/16/20. Probably out hunting for toilet paper?

No I don't think you are a stalker, just really excited about seeing another Tour X. I didn't drive anywhere yesterday so there is definitely a doppelganger out there. Sorry but I've never driven my Tour X across the shortcut from Park St to FSB on Main St. And really, I'm not gaslighting you! Enjoy today's snow.

OK there are at least 6 TourX I've seen in Central NH. 3 white, including mine. 2 pearl, and one Rosa Red. What is your count.
As I put the more worn set of Michelin Defender LX on the Subie Sunday to save the better set to get me through next winter, I took the TourX with the snow tires today to work. Love the heated steering wheel!
TourX is too confident in snow, I need to be aware other cars sharing the road are not.
The Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3, size 245/50r18 tires on the TourX handle sportier on dry pavement than the OEM Conti's all seasons, although they may not be the worlds grippiest tire in winter conditions, they are way better than the Conti's in snow also. Rolling resistance, road noise and smoothness, not quite as good with the Pirelli tires compared to OEM's, but not terrible.

48.0 mpg average over 50 miles. (20.4 km/l for you socialist units people) I was hoping to hit 50 mpg to see what it would say. It reads a max of 99 mpg instantaneous when coasting.
This was coming home from the Colorado mountains to metro Denver. Cruise set at 67 mph. Last 20 miles were mostly flat. Lots of downhill for the first 30.

Vacationing several years ago in Estes Park heading home eastward in a Chevy Trailblazer I remember getting mid-30's well into Iowa. Downhill, west wind with a storm chasing us was a best-case scenario for the truck which regularly got 20mpg.

Not to burst anyones bubble..but kansas city-denver(vice versa) OR to a lesser extent omaha- denver(or Wyoming) should be disqualified.

I drove i70 and i80 cross country many, many times. Going west there is a slight incline for like 400mi. So slight you barely notice. Also you're almost always into a headwind. Good chance mpgs will be crappy.

Going east downhill and with a tailwind you can get phenomenal mpgs..no matter what u drive.

Years ago i had a diesel suburban. Kc to denver i routinely got 12-14mpg(one time in winter it was 11mpg) all the way across KS.

Going the other way 20-21mpg. Once I had a 23mpg avg and thought i hit the jackpot!!

I managed 38.3 MPG coming home from my in-Laws' last Sunday, ACC set to the speed limit, just under 100 miles. 60 & 65 mph highways. I was lucky and didn't hit many stop lights along the way.

I'm afraid to see what the mileage is now that my wife put a week's worth of in-town stop-and-go driving.

Just did 2475 mile round trip from MN to NC - via WI, IL, IN, KY, VA, & OH. lots of time spent on the mountain routes. Used 91-93 gas as was available. Plenty of time between 70-80 mph when possible.
Wonderful interstate performance, comfy for me + wife + 2 dogs.

I've done Denver to KC going East many times. Mostly by motorcycle. Couple times strong headwinds had me at 30 mpg on a bike that normally got 42-44.

Tomorrow we head to KC from Denver in the Tour X. Ill track the mileage.

My 2018 GS has 25,900 miles on the odometer. I just drove 2 hours on the interstate with ACC set at 73. I was astounded to see my last 50 miles avg was 35.9. 87 octane. No wonder I love my car!!

We just got back from driving the Natchez Trace (444 miles end-to-end) for our 33rd anniversary. Pics are from our final tank of 87 octane. The speed limit on the Trace is 50 (which is what I drove), and it's generally flat to gently rolling hills.

IMG_2989.jpeg

MPG after driving 140.6 miles this morning (departing from the B&B in Mississippi where we stayed overnight).

IMG_3161.jpeg

MPG when I filled up after we got home this afternoon (note I still had about ¼ tank left). The hand-calculated MPG for the tank was 33.9.

Las Cruces to Tucson netted 33.5 mpg.

I was averaging about 75mph the entire time.

Very pleased.
