I agree.

Actually "driving to consumption" is probably a better way of describing what I do when I say I'm "driving with load" (DWL) anyway (even though I don't have lean burn).

I almost never have the "LOD" value displayed on my ScanGauge - when I'm focused on DWL, I'm actually watching instant fuel consumption (MPG).

What newer GM's have lean burn? So far the only documented cars I know of that use it are Honda and some Fords (search for Escort lean burn here).
