Keeping it in third gear didn't net me anymore MPG, actually lost a few > : ( Last tank using the overdrive was much better. Have since filled up and I'm hoping that I'll get to see 37-38 mpg this tank. Rarely have any other cars around on my way to work. Been doing a lot of neutral coasting with both engine on and off. Wishing it was a 5 speed.
