It was never planned but I knew it was going to save me gas. My air cond compressor seized and the belt broke loose. Its the same belt to the hydraulic pump for power steering. So parking is really hard but handles like a go kart! I could feel every gravel on the road. But it gave me a jump in fuel savings. I have hit 49mpg when my best extra urban was 38. Plus its like 80% urban. Could not believe those stuff suck that much power from the engine. Which also means more power to the wheels.
