Nimble and Grant- With Pulse and Glide techniques, there can be an advantage with the extra momentum. There have been quite a few posts on here where they will say that their best trip on their favorite road was with extra weight in the car. I also have taken data on all my car usage with load descriptions and ambient temp., and found that there was less difference with weight than temp.. Just my vehicle, my roads, and my experiences.
