I drove approx. 80 miles yesterday and I saw that I got a peak at 33mpg, constant 30mph. I realized the only time I got a number like that would be if I drive conservative. For instance anyone who knows the route 206, it has it's uphills and downhills, I would let it coast downhill and I would watch the mpg increase. I wouldn't drive as aggressively and now second day driving (I've got at least 40XX miles on the dial) my mpg is getting 27.9mpg.
thank you. i am officially obsessed to see how high i can get on the meter! thanks for all your great advice! i have been driving "grandma style" lately, shifting below 3000 rpm -- we'll see how much of an increase i'll get. thanks again.
