The Road Test.

Here is a typical road test I took to check the MPG of the neon. I started on the south end of Chippewa Falls , WI and ended up on the north side of Chippewa Falls. As you can see on the map, I took the scenic route! The trip was around 322 miles and I used 6.06 Gallons of fuel, one apple juice, some beef jerky and 12 radio stations. That gave me 53-mpg. There were about 20 towns and one section of road construction that slowed me to 25mph. I traveled this route to give me a real world test. This also gave me a good mixture of highway and city driving.

Here are the FACTS about the Road Test.
