My wife and I are about ready to embark (leaving June 1) on a 7,500+ trip in our 2019 EX. We do it every year but this year it will all be done in the EX. HERE'S some of the route, but Google maps has a max of 10 destinations so this doesn't not include some side trips. By the time we take some additional side trips, it could very well be more than 8,000 miles which has been the case the last two years, 8,042 last year and 8,444 in 2017 (included New York City and not Houston). Much of the driving is through states with a posted 80 mph speed limit, which means we are often traveling 83-84 mph. We are thinking we will get about 40-42 mpg on average. I'll report on the trip when we return to Spokane (our home) around July 18. Should be fun!
