No, made the trip in only a few more hours than a regular car. I just need to finish writing my blog. To make the trip in this amount of time requires the use of gas. Actually, I saw a several of the same cars pass me throughout the day, so those cars obviously weren't making better average time. Even if driving 10 mph faster. Although I dropped to 30 mph in a few spots for a short amount of time, my average moving speed was still close to 65 or 70 mph. I was never really a hindrance to traffic as it is easy to pass a vehicle that speed. Slow vehicles are only a problem in the passing lanes (what slows up traffic is a vehicle passing another at like 0.5 mph faster).
