CorvetteBlogger contributor Jeremy Welborn is headed to National Corvette Museum for the 26th Anniversary Event this weekend. He is once again behind the wheel of his Sebring Orange 2020 Corvette Stingray and snapped this photo after a lengthy stint as makes the 850-mile journey from Oklahoma to Kentucky.
As you can see, his trip odometer reads 456.9 miles with an estimated 79 miles of fuel range available, all the while averaging a comfortable 70.6 mph average speed. That’s 535 miles if you believe the estimated fuel range as the tank is nearly drained. Still, not too shabby when you got 495 horsepower on tap! Jeremy assures us this was the result of one single tank of feul and as we talked on the phone, he said his second tank of gas is also showing similar data.
Here’s a quick clip he uploaded to YouTube as he finally stopped to refuel:
For those interested, here’s the EPA data on the 2020 Corvette from FuelEconomy.gov and it shows the range to be 352 miles which we would think to be normal in both city and highway driving. With the car cruising down the highway, the LT2 slips into V4 mode and is now averaging higher than the rating:
