  1. Default New York to Cali and back Tips Appreciated

    Hello there!
    My friend and I are wanting to go on a road trip from New York to California.
    We have family and friends along the way, so we don't need money for hotels to stay in.
    Food wouldn't be much of an issue with meeting friends and family.

    How much do you think we would need just for gas for that kind of trip? If your car gets between, 20 to 25 miles to the gallon.

    And has anyone ever done an entire cross country road trip?
    And are they ways to raise money for one?

    Thank you to anyone who reads this and responds!

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    A few questions before you start out - what kind of trip are you looking for? Do you want to visit the happening cities along the way, the natural wonders, a mixture of both? How much time are you going to have for your trip?

    If you have lodging as well as a food supply along the way, you have a very fortunate - I have found that food adds up to about 30% of the cost of a roadtrip, and lodging adds up to about the same. Keep in mind this is not dining out every day, nor is it extravagant lodging.

    Our planning page has lots of great tips to help you get started.

    If the trip is 2700 miles one-way, then your fuel needed would be 2700 miles / 25 miles / gallon = 108 gallons needed
