Yeah I remember always trying to be 10-20MPH above the limit and scanning for cops on the interstate. At the time getting their as quick as I could felt like a challenge. Now I set the cruise at 55 and really don't notice the time difference, I don't know why I always used to be in a hurry just so I could lounge around inside the house. I still enjoy spirited driving on country roads, but driving for FE accomodates that, pulsing as fast as you can (sometimes over the limit) and going as fast as your tires will allow in neutral around an off camber, downhill turn == awesome AND economical (and just as potentially deadly) :-).
