Once you get there the ride up the coast of Ca. all the way up to Seattle is really cool! And what you don't wanna go 5 miles in a 2hr period in Atl for a while? I dont miss that traffic. But rippin thru downtown late night was always fun! Enjoy the trip7k happy miles on my Stinger and I've decided to go from Atlanta to the Pacific and I'm going to be taking lots of pictures along the way
Stopping by Beaumont TX for a family reonion then it's off to whereever
my father died in April and a good friend of mine died in Aug, my friend left me a very nice camera and my dad well Thank you so much for affording me the time and place to do this
so I'm on Instagram if you want to follow the Kraken Stinger and I'll post some pics periodically on this thread
100% Get the oil changed... best thing you can do for your car - especially one with a turbo, or pair of them!So Im about to hit my 10k service mark and I called my dealership they said I have to do it there for no cost, my next stop is Phoenix should I at least get an oil change? Wait until I get back?
I went c. 1,500 miles past my service period because I was on my way back home after going to GA from Salt Lake city. Since 99% of my driving was on the freeway, I figured that the overshoot was no big deal; especially since I was still well inside the recommended 6K miles interval (normally, in Utah, I change oil every 4K miles).So Im about to hit my 10k service mark and I called my dealership they said I have to do it there for no cost, my next stop is Phoenix should I at least get an oil change?

1. Congratulations on your ticket!
Since I got pulled over I've slowed it down, I think Im averaging 26mpg using smart mode and the occasional sport modeGreat Road Trip... Did you purposely do any long stretches with no turbo boost, to record what's best fuel economy on just eco mode steady cruising ? Curious to see what it can do if just cruising at 65mph for 4-5 steady ?
I've only tested it for 400 km round trip and got apprx. 8.8L/100kms ( 27.3 mpg )... car is more broken in now and I am not sure that is accurate, from the cars fuel computer thingy. I'll be doing a long drive and check it out up here. soon.
New lock downs, I want to take a road trip with the wife to chill and come back same day.
Im planning on staying further north I want to see the red wood forrestIf you get a chance, I do think going from LA to San Francisco is a great drive taking Route 1. I drove that like 2 months ago when I was on the west coast for work. Unfortunately I only had a rented SUV and I wish I had my stinger. You are doing on your trip what I wanted to do last year before Covid. Now with this new year I don't know if I will have the time or funds with purchasing a new home in my future. I'm sure we are all enjoying living vicariously through your updates.
I got my first warning on my way into TX, approaching Amarillo; was doing 15 above. Since then I've kept my cruising speed below ten (nine you're fine, ten you're mine, philosophy).Since I got pulled over I've slowed it down, I think Im averaging 26mpg using smart mode and the occasional sport mode
