8 hours is a good basic measure. My 'best' time going from Smyrna (on the west side of ATL) to Brandon (on the east side of Tampa) is 7 hours, 15 minutes, and that's going close to 80mph for a good part of the trip. Let it be noted, however - I am never the fastest car on the road. I just keep up with traffic. Watch out for cops in Georgia....they are everywhere.

We've made it from the Treasure Island area (west of Tampa Bay) back home (a little east of Atlanta) in about 7 1/2 hours - but I will admit, I was putting the pedal to the metal!! :) I think I averaged about 80 - 85 miles per hour, but folks were still passing me! It is a very easy drive up I-75, though - just watch out for state troopers lurking in bushes or overpasses!
