    Just sharing

    I had my Mitsumi full tanked Automatic got 26 Liters and still had 2 bars left before filling up. 5 adults and full load at the back.

    drove for 500+ km back and forth. getting around 17km/l reading from my odo and when I came back yesterday same speed and same reading still had 2 bars left when I went to Donsol and 3 bars left when I got back home. I used 98RON going to Donsol and used 95RON back. Cost was $42 USD.

    considering there are some traffic once reached other provinces. and only had 2 stops to rest. Drove for 13hours!! WEW

    Wow that's a lot of driving. I looked up your route on Google Maps just to better browse your route and see your local landscape. If I understand correctly, you followed the Pan Phillipine Highway, correct? Do you suppose you could provide a link to your route that might give more accurate details than the image you posted?

    Sorry I made some corrections now with the previous Map route. I already included the route link for the map.

    Also you may want to check this or search via google "Bitukang Manok Atimonan" its one hell of a road haha but Mitsumi Beat it!

    a lot of rough road after Pilar and Zigzaggy roads too!

    BTW, I left our house last Sunday Apr 9 and took the same road Apr 13.

    Using Google Street View I was able to browse your route and the scenery along the way. In a sense, it is similar to almost being there. I saw some of the winding path and rough roads you describe. Very cool!

    Thanks for sharing.

    So, do you make many long trips like that in your Mirage? I wonder if your Mirage would be considered a luxury in parts of your country - I noticed a lot of motorbikes along the route in Street View.

    It's always interesting to see these cars in different parts of the world.

    I would like to make it to the Philippines some day. My wife's grandfather is buried in the Manila American Cemetery in Taguig City. That doesn't look very far from where your trip started.

    Actually its my first long driving trip. I had someone with me who knows the road well and helped me with my driving. My odo is only around 26k for two years of city driving. Those motorbikes you see are the once going on a trip to Quezon.

    @TopFuel
    it looks short but if you try to drive around manila and outside to certain provinces youll probably wanted to stop every province you gone through here because of nature and wonderful places here.

    I thought "Suzuki Springs" was the name of a location you visited along the way for the first time. I thought it odd since Suzuki would be a Japanese word. I couldn't find anything on Google about Suzuki Springs, and finally put two and two together and realized you've replaced the rear springs on your Mirage with ones from a Suzuki. I haven't had coffee yet.
