Some of that gain is due to the re-formulated summer gas but I've never averaged over 40mpg in this car.
slowing down has gotten me my share of 'looks',
but in the end, it's not about the look as it is the savings.
Hi neighbor!!!

I'm in Auburn and do the Rte 93 shuffle too. If you'd told me 6 months ago that I'd be driving 60 in the slow lane I'd have laughed. Now if I get up over 70 I get "antsy".
