Roundabouts help FE greatly when empty and are worse than a light when busy

This car hates closely spaced stops
Oh the joys of having a manual. My autotragic Civic was limited to one 60 mpg trip on the highway....with a tailwind...55 mph max...never to be repeated lol.

I hear ya on the roundabouts though, my college campus is filled with them and they can either be good or one royal PITA.
