Wow, thats seems really high for a 37 mile commute. I also have a 37 mile commute, and driving sensible only adds about 5 or so minutes to the trip.

BTW, you don't have to accelerate slowly to get good mileage. In fact, you get better mileage if you accelerate as you would if you were using pulse and glide. Just be careful not to over-accelerate to the point where you need to brake.
