I drive about 60 on a local 4 lane state road where the posted speed is 65 and most people are driving 70+.
When I get to the interstate i go about 62-63 on the flats and let it run on the hills up to the posted 70 mph speed.
I do see that some people are angry when they get stuck behind me but am happy when I get to the off-ramp stoplight and they are there waiting for me.
The nice thing though is I am not the only one doing it.
The sad thing is that I am constantly being passed by Insights, Echos, Prius, and other "high efficiency" cars.
Just trying to save a little more money!
