Mr. Nitro—my 2007 Dodge Nitro R/T—now has 500 miles on his odometer. He is averaging 18.9 mpg for city driving and 21.9 mpg for highway driving. He is a worthy and noble replacement for RAMMMMM. Mr. Nitro lusts for a visit to the beach at the Sacramento River (approximately 5 miles from here). This was a favorite of RAMMMMM's. This weekend is Memorial Day weekend, and I prefer to avoid travel on holiday weekends. The following weekend, perhaps Mr. Nitro shall journey to the beach!
