Ride A Motorcycle...

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Yep! great advice...
Except. Spent the week of May 10th to 16th riding in the Blue Ridge Mntns in NC. I get about 220 miles per tank, and hadn't realized there was a run on gas until all the stations around were out. My buddy only gets about 120 MPT. I had to siphon mine to get him back. We waited it out for two days, no riding, until the local WalMart (Murphys) got a fresh supply. We carried a one gallon red can with us for a day as backup for my buddy.  By Monday the 17th things were recovering okay. So, you are correct 70 MPG gets you 210 miles out of a three gallon tank! plus a little left for your buddy!
