    I'd have to disagree. But we can all coexist peacefully :)

    62 mph in 10 is 620
    75 mph in 10 is 750

    How does it amount the same? Leave the extra hour you use up stopping and accelerating again during the 11 hours for your break and you'll do it for the most part as long as you don't hit traffic accident etc..

    Because you're not going to do 750 miles in 10 hours you're not going to average 75 miles an hour...

    No you wont...you're not going to avg 75mph...that would mean you would have to drive 80 99% of the time..that will not happen..

    Yes it does. Maybe not 100% of the time but yes you will. I drove 700 miles 3 days in a row in a 65mph truck... So yes you can

    Depends where you are and how you're loaded. But if you slow down to 62, you also don't average 62. You would have to go, in most cases, 67 to average that.

    750 divided by 11 comes out to 68 not a problem if you're running in states with a 75-80 mph.
