Hot Under the Hood

While the Metro did great transporting the yurt frame from Austin to Dallas, the addition of 150 lbs of vinyl lead to engine overheating driving a similar distance to Flipside. While I still got 45 mpg, I was frequently forced to turn on the heater inside the car to keep the engine temp out of the red. Clearly that situation is unacceptable on 2000-mile-one-way trip to Portland, so a reduction in weight and some engine upgrades may be necessary before then. For sure I’ll be using less than half the vinyl, which will help.
