    Yes, there is a coast road most of the way down, and it is truly spectacular. I would allow at LEAST a week, more if you want to spend time in the cities. Seattle to San Diego can actually be driven in 2 long days on the motorways.

    A very rough number you can use for petrol is 20 cents a mile, which would be about $300 for a trip from Seattle to San Diego with a few detours for sightseeing. This would assume a typical hire car.
