The standard goodyears. I'm mostly doing coasting with a controlled take off from lights, slower on the thruway, shifting at 1500rpm's without lugging the engine. I live at about 1200 feet and work at about 150 ft in elevation. So lot;s of coasting to work, and a slow and steady pace home with decel on hills, gaining on downhills. I have a scanguage coming especially with working with my motorhome for a long trip this summer. If I can get the fuel economy from 7.5mpg's to 9 or 10 mpg's I'll see a huge savings on a very long trip(florida from NY). Haven't mastered the p&g, but never use the engine to slow me down, coast out of parking lot;s etc. Fixed the nut behind the wheel mostly. YFF
