Yes, people get annoyed sometimes. I try to drive a little faster for them, if they cannot get around me. I also limit my pulse and glides. Lastly, I'll switch lanes to let other cars by me. It is a kind of like reverse weaving between traffic: speeders weave to to pass slower cars, but I weave to be passed by faster cars.In the end though, speed limits and other laws are rules none have a right to require me to break. If they get mad, they can take it up with a cop.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
