    All the way through. I made it at about 24-26 mpg for the whole trip, and that was cruising between 72-78. Very impressed honestly. Now when I get back to NJ my tranny pan will be in lol. I am Not counting the last 45 minutes, someone thought their car was tougher than a guardrail...flipped their car onto its side.

    What about a 4400LBS with a supercharged 6.2L V8? Because the CTS-V has a smaller tank than we do...

    Bad Brad's BBQ might be an option, I've heard it's good. If you're around 696/94 area (highways) There's a place called Lazybone's Smokehouse which is awesome. I don't know of many places aside from Brad's that's up that way though.

    If you get down to the St. Clair Shores area there's a lot of good places, New York Deli at 10mile and Little Mack... REALLY good Ruebens.

    Check out yelp.com for some local places, I'm sure you'll find some good stuff.

    They have a triple decker, corned beef/pastrami but you can get it grilled with 'kraut. The 'strami is sometimes fatty though, good flavor but not everyone likes it that way.
