Patience, Grasshopper.

My Toyota truck was very good for engine off coasting and bump starting. It would also idle along in 5th gear very nicely. The motor was like a tractor motor. However, it is not the most efficient machine compared to other vehicles. Just compare yourself to the EPA numbers, not to small cars.

Making the tank last as long as possible should be one of your goals. How many miles can you squeeze out of a tank? Thats part of the fun.
