Ever since I got that ticket in the mail, I have been trying to slow down and not run thru the gears like I did before. All I can say is that I am seeing some pretty awesome MPG(like I have never seen with this car)Right now the instant MPG is showing 38 or 39 MPG and that is mainly city driving. Any more I have been driving and everyone that wants to pass me is more than welcome to! I have given up with trying to be #1 and just enjoy the drive. Much more relaxing!!! and I may just yet earn one of those badges? Now I know it is possible and all my MPG problems were caused by my driving not something wrong with the car!!!!
