Well, I guess it's reliable. 1800 miles to CA and back!

I road tripped Layla over the weekend. Down to Lake Tahoe, CA and back. Over 1800 miles with 0 problems. Not bad for a 110K motor with a used piston/rod out of another and rings out of a third. It ate 3 qts the entire trip, and my damn oil sending unit STILL leaks, so that accounted for most of it. I averaged 29.5 mpg on flat stretches of highway and 22-26 depending on how big the mountains were. This is with a BBK 255 pump, Kirban AFPR @45psi, Gillis @15psi, and me driving [Image: wink.gif] Now I have to go get the race car moving! Good thing I took the week off! (Mostly to catch up on mailing big parts and stripping the clunkers). Maybe next year the road trip will be to Carlisle!

BTW, Here's a pic of Layla in front of the highest point on I5, just North of the CA border. Makes a cool pic.
