Mae Hong Son trip

Sawadee Khrap

1-mae-hong-sonTested out the Vitara – very nice and I think very good gas mileage – 8 KM/Liter for the LPG and 6 KM/Liter for 95 Gasohol.  The road is constant IMG_3333curves and extremely hilly – they boast of over 2000 + curves –  a real test of full load mileage.  – I didn’t switch between the two – just ran on 3/4 tank of LPG for the first leg of the trip – to Mae Hong Son – 255 KM  – then switched to Gasohol for the balance.  You can really tell the difference in power using LPG – Gasohol gives you much more power but poorer mileage  Still had a little less than half a tank gasohol left when we got back – estimated IMG_3346total mileage possible using both – 700 KM in hard driving – Flat Highway mileage should be much better. I’ll test it later with a trip to Pattaya or Isaan now that I have good transportation.  Saifha went with me and we did get some photos – where they were taken is posted on the map and I am preparing them now – will post shortly.   It was not good weather – COLD.
