San Fran is pretty hilly. I can only imagine - full sized car with V-8, short enough trip not to warm up, extra gas to go up a hill, then stoplight. Extra gas again, then another light.... Or the other way, DOWNHILL to stoplight, BRAKE. down to the next stoplight - BRAKE.

Yeah, I can see 8 .... and in those conditions, 15 would be super-human!!! (super-car? - no, that would be a Lamborghini or Veyron - - ????)

(guess that's where a hybrid would really shine, huh?)
