A good many elevation changes and corners the whole way just about from my rural location into the city of Athens. It's mostly "highway" miles. I'm very good at timing lights properly to keep momentum as well.

With winter weather, wet roads and unknown tire pressure, the accelerator pedal issue, possible coolant sensors reading low (gauge seems to anyway not sure the engines actually over cooled but I have my suspicions given the amount of time it takes to get hot air from the heater seems a bit longer than it ought to be) indicating that perhaps the thermostat has either been removed (that's stupid) changed to a lower temp (also stupid) or stuck in a open state and a few other very minor things I think that number can easily come up some, especially this summer.

Stopped today at the local parts store and had them scan the ECU for codes, clean no codes. Excellent. (there was no CEL but sometimes minor codes don't seem to throw a CEL so I wanted to check anyway)
