we started in Long Island New York and drove down 95 to South Florida.
This is a stock diesel Overland with two people, two bikes and the luggage on the folded back seats. Most of the highway driving was done with the adaptive cruise control set 5 to ten mph over the speed limit, but never higher then 79.

I I quickly learned that at both rest stops and gas stations, you should ignore all signage saying "tractor, trailers, and pickups, this way" and use the car lanes. The skinnier nozzles for fuel are at the car pumps.

On the way down we stopped in Sante South Carolina for the night, and continued on to Soth Florida where we stayed for a week doing local trips. On the way back north we took highway 17, 13 and 1 with stops in Mertyle Beach and Virginia beach before heading home.

This trip was fantastic in the Jeep. It was comfortable, drove great and got great fuel mileage, better then 33 mpg.

Awesome! 33 mpg in a Jeep, amazing. What type of rack did you go with? Tonneau cover as well or open bed?
