9999 seems better

Yesterday I had a chance to do a little one-way testing. Went 26.4 flat miles with cruise at 50 mph with a slight tail wind and got SGII 35.4 mpg. Return using hard acceleration (70-80 load to 70 mph) followed by glide in gear to 42 mph with SCII reading 9999 on the glide and got SCII 36.6 mpg with slight head wind. Seems like leaving the automatic in gear and getting the 4-9s gives better mileage than coasting with the engine on or cruise even on flat land. EPA for the car is 26 mpg highway. Sorry, no ABA testing done.

Just a fun time in the car.
