What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

How!? I can barely get 250 on a good tank


Cruise control everywhere, all the time, even on city streets. You donít need to do a Prius crawl to get moving, but donít floor it either. Get up to speed and set the cruise.

I use 70mph on the highway. Keeping it under 2k rpm has a lot to do with it I think.
I also change lanes as needed to stay on the cruise control. I try to let it coast down, as much as possible, if I see I have to stop or slow up ahead.

My low fuel light comes on with about 4-4.5 gallons left in the tank, so I never fill up right when it comes on. This tank was done on regular gas. Havenít put premium in it yet.

Brought home half a ton of landscaping bricks so I can build a firepit out of an old tractor wheel I was given.

Broke 400miles per tank. 70 of it on the low fuel light. (I decided to top off the tank with a little extra on the last fill up.)

Stock 2007 minus AEM filter and scuba mod.

I could get 400 miles per tank also as long as I had a 220 mile hill to coast down before driving the next 180 miles ………….so there

Re: What did you do WITH your FJ today, Take 2...

I expected to see a lot more people out on the trails down in Moab over the long holiday weekend; I almost didn't even go out of fear of it being over-crowded... where was everyone?? I ran 4 or 5 mellow trails with the dogs and never saw a single vehicle other than parked at a few dispersed campsites. At least I know what area to head to when it's extra busy!

Thanks! The avatar was silver crack on 7-mile rim, I still haven't done golden bar rim or golden crack yet!

I ran hidden canyon overlook to Bartlett overlook, there's a fun steep section in between. Then up long canyon and some short unnamed trail by granary canyon. The next day I did dellenbaugh tunnel, secret spire, and rainbow terrace (a new fav for scenery) which I think is the southern end of the crystal geyser safari route. I was solo this time so I didn't want to get into anything too tough. Still had a blast!

I did not know about Silver Crack! Have run 7 Mile several times....where is it? You mention many trail names I donít recognize - need to pick you brain! Will look up the places you mentioned. Are you coming to Moab before or after Summit?

I've been slowly checking off trails in the funtreks book, so they're all in there. Silver crack is up on the rim, just before heading down towards Merrimack and Monitor Buttes. The easy way across it is on the far right side, but if you stay about 100-200 feet left you can get some sweet poser shots! Here's a quick vid of silver crack in the 80 from last month: https://www.instagram.com/p/BiIPvwugiMd/

I'm not sure if we'll do Moab before summit yet, it looks like I'm getting roped into a wedding the weekend before which will cut my departure time a couple days shorter than I had hoped. But maybe...
