<br> Hi All,<p> I've had my XC90 V8 for around six months now and I just got back from my first long road trip. I drove from Boston MA to Toronto Canada and back. I was going up to Toronto for 10 days and figured instead of flying ($468 return) and needing to rent a car for 10 days I'd drive my baby up and back. The trip is 600 Miles one way<p> The vehicle performed amazingly well on the drive up, even with the pouring rain. I drove with cruise control set to 73 Mph and I was getting avrg of 22 MPG. The return trip saw great sunny weather and for 3/4 of the journey I tucked in behind a Lexus GS 300 AWD and we avrged an amazing 21.3 MPG doing an avrg 80 Mph. The vehicle had a good amount of stuff in the back and it was my wife and myself. <p> I really loved the long trip and found the seats very comfortable and the V8 always willing to fly <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> I really love my XC90 V8 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
