I must say getting in it in my ex seems to help. The built in av guage seems to be thrown off drastically by it though got 27.5 mpg and dash readout was 24.4. was shocked when I hand calculated it. It had dropped a bit from 25.4 since I started running up rpm a bit to get to tc lockup faster. My Cruze on the other hand seems to respond decently to the same treatment when it's a bit cold yet. Speeds warm up time vs slow acceleration and helps for efficiency at cruising speed earlier. Yet the route I'm taking currently is a bit windy I call it my hypermiler route. Have to go this way due to road work. Have been coming out with near the same numbers as prior to testing your hammer down theory. I feel my earlier assumption that na would respond better than turbo vehicles was correct.
