Most of my driving currently is terrible for mpg, 45mph and under up hill down hill mountain trails to and from work. The worst is a 3 mile 9% grade that the civic does not like. Even my Lincoln has to hold onto 3rd gear for the climb, the instant mpg gauge on the lincoln shows 8-9mpg on the grade. I have tried down grade without the engine but I don't feel safe without my brake power booster, so I neutral coast down it.
