Thumbs up Looks like the Pulse and Glide technique is working well

Hey everyone. It's been a while since I've last owned a vehicle (I had a Geo Metro until Spring 2008 and then went car-free for a while) so I'm glad that I still find the P+G technique working great with my cheap '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 269K miles on it.

I have no instrumentation at all however the thing that seems to work for me with this vehicle is accelerating from 25-mph to 35-mph in 3rd gear and then put the automatic gear selector into neutral until I fall to 25-mph again (engine running). Then rinse and repeat. Getting above EPA is *SO* much easier in this vehicle compared to the little Geo!!!
