But I'm RPM obsessed. :-) They drop down SO much when I'm in neutral I have to be getting better mileage. Well, actually, the car's built-in "avg. mpg" sensor clearly shows my mpg increases when I'm in neutral. And then there is the whole issue of "gear resistance" where the car just doesn't roll as easily or as far when in gear as opposed to neutral. Oh the dilemma!

I do have a feeling that Brake Masters was exaggerating the metal in the transmission fluid thing. They showed it to me quickly but I don't recall major chunks of anything.

I love my cute Fiat 500, Sophia!
