The evening started out like all others, setting around watching movies. then several phone calls saying my cousin Randy had passed away, and the family would like me to come up for the funeral. After deep thought we decided to drive. Then since we were driving decided to take the Casita out for it’s spring run.

Here are some facts on the trip. Wanting to use up some of the last miles on the 2000 Discovery before the warranty runs out, we took it. This is a smaller engine than the 04. Left Irving and hit high winds, Rain, and hail. Heading right into it. If you let off the gas, you slowed down like you put the brakes on. This killed the gas mileage. Between Dalhart TX. And Trinidad Co. got the worst MPG 7.8. This is about half of what we get running around town. Things got somewhat better heading through Co. and Wy.12.833 mpg. Then it died again…9.345mpg going over the mountains into Pinehurst Id. The trip home the average was 11.632mpg. I will admit that I drove faster on this trip than most. Only having a short time to get there and back

We spent six nights in campgrounds, not wanting any surprises I looked for KOA’s. And made sure they were right off the freeway. They ran from $17.00 to $32.99 a night, total cost for all six nights was $157.04. Food for the trip $149.43. This included times we ate in restaurants.

I lost all the data from other trips with the 2000 Discovery and the Moab UT trip pulling the Casita with the 2004 Discovery. To the best of my knowledge this is the worst gas milage. Including the trip to the Black Hills when the 04 was having o2 sensor problems.

I took the gold Disco in for it’s 60,000 mile service. Part of the problem with gas millage may have been the mass air flow sensor, which had to be replaced.
