Pulse & glide video. 0-70 mpg in 2 miles

and 64.4 mpg in 5.2 miles on a warm engine. 12 minute video.

I hoped this would be an improvement over my original 21 minute video showing how I went 0-60 mpg in 10 miles in the Winter on a cold engine. But I like the better video quality of the first attempt. I used a different camera and mount for the current attempt, but the images are smaller and shakier.

Don't try this with most automatic transmission cars. EOC is dangerous. Do it at your own risk.

Which one do you prefer, and why? Your answers will help me do a better job next time.
