Stratus has about same size motor, I take it to about 25-2700 rpm with as much throttle as I can without it downshifting. Too low of rpm with a auto and the torque convertor is slipping alot, we need to get them into drive and TC lockup as quck as pratical.

Agree with the above most gains come from the coast. My 15 yo girl has been driving the Stratus the last month and is averaging 33 with her 4 mile each way drive to school, she's a pretty good coaster, didn't talk at all about how to accelerate during her pratice time, but did emphasize when she could start coasting.
