YKYAEM when you take a 5.5L twin-turbo V12 for an "aggressive" drive, at the end the trip computer says that you got 0.8MPG over the EPA highway rating.

It really demonstrated to me that how you accelerate is not as important as how you decelerate, the "aggressive" was all in the starting, I hardly used the brakes as just allowing the car to slow itself down in gear is so normal for me now.
